Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Tulsa Police and undercover officers with Tulsa’s ABLE commission will be increasing patrols New Year’s Eve. Their mission is to keep drunk drivers off the streets.

OHP said there will not be sobriety check points, instead patrols will saturate the city. Authorities will focus on areas were they have been successful at pulling over drunk drivers in the past.

They will be looking for even the smallest sign someone may be drunk and behind the wheel, for instance, if someone isn’t wearing their seat belt. The patrols will begin at 6 pm New Year’s Eve and be in enforcement until 3 a.m. Tuesday.

Besides being out on the streets, agents with the Alcohol Beverage Law Enforcement commission will be undercover in bars and clubs looking for under-age drinking and bartenders over-serving customers.

You can use AAA Tipsy Tow service if you think you are too drunk to drive. The number is 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357). AAA will tow your car, free, up to 15 miles to your home. The service is offered in Bartlesville, Muskogee and Tahlequah.
