FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. -- A multi-agency awareness campaign against drunk drivers during Memorial Day weekend concluded with two DUI arrests and more than 65 traffic citations, according to Flagler County Police press release.

The release said the Flagler County Sheriff's Office, the Florida Wildlife Commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service worked together to patrol the waterways. Additionally, the Flagler Beach and Bunnell Police Departments also participated in the enforcement wave.

The campaign launched Friday, May 24 and ended Monday, May 27.

When the weekend ended, 58 traffic warnings had been issued and two traffic-related arrests had been made. One other arrest involved narcotics, the release detailed.

The three-agency effort resulted in 39 contacts with boaters, which resulted in no enforcement action. The marine units completed 23 stops and issued warnings to boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway.  No boating under the influence (BUI) arrests were made. 

"This cooperative effort was designed to raise the public's awareness to the dangers of drinking and driving while operating a motor vehicle or a boat. We encourage all motorists and boaters to watch for and call 911 anytime they encounter a dangerous driver on our county roads or waterways," said Sheriff James L. Manfre.
