Meet the DUI Interceptor, Columbus Police Department’s mobile breath testing vehicle. We’re on a mission to keep our roads safe from impaired drivers. That means you’ll see us out in the community, patrolling the streets of Columbus and surrounding areas and processing DUI drivers on the spot.

Going out tonight?
So are we.

The best way to ensure you don’t get charged with DUI—or worse, cause an accident—is to make a plan for how you’ll get home safely before you start drinking. Figure out a designated driver or keep the number for a ride service handy in your phone. You, your loved ones, and everyone in your community will be grateful you did.
