Authorities in York County will be targeting DUI offenders as well as BUI — boating under the influence — offenders through the July 4 holiday and beyond.

The Center for Traffic Safety said in a news release that local and state police started the DUI enforcement efforts Monday, June 24, and will continue through Saturday, July 7.

Roving DUI patrols and sobriety checkpoints will be conducted as part of the effort. 

In addition to finding those driving under the influence, authorities alsowill target those boating under the influence.
