Task Force will set up high visibility saturation patrols and safety checkpoints throughout the city of Huntsville. Members of the Special Operations Division along with Uniformed Patrol Officers from each precinct will also participate by maintaining traffic enforcement activities at various NATSO “HOT SPOT” locations. High visibility D.U.I. saturation patrols and safety checkpoints will be conducted during this increased enforcement period throughout the City of Huntsville. Locations will include but not be limited to roadways such as Interstate 565, Memorial Parkway, Drake Avenue, Jordan Lane, University Drive, Bob Wallace Avenue, Bailey Cove Road, Andrew Jackson Way, Sparkman Drive, Pulaski Pike and Cecil Ashburn Drive.
