City of Delray Beach to Petition the Florida Dept. of Transportation for Funds Aimed at Strengthening DUI Enforcement.
The City of Delray Beach has set its sights on obtaining money that would finance an officer whose duties would primarily include analyzing ways to fight DUI offenders. The City of Delray Beach also hopes to use this grant money to finance a vehicle outfitted to further this endeavor. The application seeks over $100,000 which the City claims is justified due to the increased number of bars on Atlantic Avenue. Very little statistical information is available which would tend to prove that the increased number of drinking establishments has any relation to the amount of impaired drivers in the Delray Beach area.
