The Marana Police Department will be conducting DUI Saturation Patrols in conjunction with the Southern Arizona DUI Task Force throughout the Labor Day Weekend. Labor Day Weekend is traditionally one of the most dangerous weekends on our roadways. Our goal is to make this a safe weekend for everyone, and prevent serious injuries and fatal collisions.

(BPT) - Your children are getting older and with each new grade level they want more independence.

My 19-year-old daughter crashed her car two weeks ago. And when I say that she “crashed her car,” I do not mean to say that she got into a fender bender. I mean to say that she crashed her car to the extent that airbags deployed on impact. I mean to say that her windshield shattered and the front end of her little Honda Civic looked very much like the peeled back tin top of a Pringles can. I mean to say that the paramedics on the scene told her—in no uncertain terms—that the seatbelt she was wearing most certainly saved her life. It was that kind of car crash. Remarkably, she walked away with just a few scratches.
