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

    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.

    If it were fundraising they wouldn't warn you two days in advance.

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

    WHO just said it'll basically be extra officers on patrol.

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

    Give a going away present or maybe you won't be leaving town for awhile if you get busted.

    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.
