The Franklin County DUI Task Force says it will be conducting impaired driving saturation patrols this weekend to cut down on drunk driving.

More than 30 agencies are teaming up to curb drinking and driving throughout the country this weekend.

Anyone planning on drinking alcohol is encouraged to either have a designated driver or make other plans to avoid getting behind the wheel of a car.  The task force also reminds drivers to slow down or pull over when they see a public safety or emergency vehicle.
