Drunk driving is bad.

With that out of the way, here's where police will be setting up "saturation patrols" around the Valley, and elsewhere, looking for impaired drivers this weekend, including Labor Day:

  • The East Valley DUI Task Force, which includes seven police departments, will be in Tempe (again) this weekend, for the last of three weekends of the "Safe and Sober" campaign to bring in the new ASU semester. On Friday, the listed address is on University Drive between Rural Road and Dorsey Lane, and Saturday is on Mill Avenue between 9th and 10th streets.

  • Phoenix police have five locations for "saturation patrols," from Friday to Monday night, many of them based in the parking lots of QT convenience stores: 27th Avenue and Thunderbird Road, 40th Street and Greenway Road, 16th Street and Mohave Street, Central Avenue and Elwood Street, and 17th Avenue and Bell Road. There are two additional patrols on Sunday and Monday night: near 16th Street and Highland Avenue, and 51st Avenue and Interstate 10.
