    This doesn't really sound "special" at all.

    no kidding

    Officers said they will be looking specifically for drivers who are operating under the influence of alcohol.

    Officers will also be watching for seat belt violations and drivers who are exceeding the speed limit.
    So, are they not looking for those things, normally?

    I assume they will be devoting more resources to it compared to a typical Friday.

    They probably announce it under the theory that while they could catch more (and probably will) for every one they catch they also hope that it changes behavior before it happens- theyd rather the drunk driving not occur at all.

    They probably had a little wedge of extra money from the feds to do this.

    At least the article defined what a designated driver was. That was always ambiguous to me.

    The step enforcement uses state funds from traffic citations to pay for additional officers to do extra enforcement in an area and usually focuses on a specified issue.
