SPOKANE, Wash. -- Starting Monday, July 1, if you drink and drive  in Spokane County you risk a greater chance of being caught and convicted.

The Washington State Patrol is launching a multi-agency task force that will intensely hunt impaired drivers around Spokane County called "Target Zero."

Team members will use new technology to guide their patrols. Team members will know where crashes are occurring and which roads lead to high-crash areas.

State troopers, Sheriff's deputies and city police officers will be out every night looking for drunk drivers. 

The Target Zero Team is funded by a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
