JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Juneau police are cracking down on drunken driving on New Year’s Eve.

KTOO-FM reports (https://bit.ly/2iaMjyT ) that the police department is encouraging those celebrating the new year with impairing substances to have plans for a designated driver. The department says it’s doubling patrols on Saturday and will have 16 officers on duty, including four assigned to investigate possible drunk drivers.

The Cabaret, Hotel, Restaurant and Retailers Association is also sponsoring its Safe Ride Home Program at participating locations on New Year’s Eve. Several local bars and restaurants, including The Island Pub, Duck Creek Market and Moose Loodge, will call for a cab to take home those needing a ride. Cab rides are free through the program.
