PANAMA CITY — Bay County law enforcement, in cooperation with the Florida Sheriff's Association, Florida Police Chiefs Association, and the Florida Highway Patrol will participate in a three-day statewide initiative to curb drunk driving starting Friday.

Law enforcement will be extra-focused on keeping roads in Bay County safe for residents and visitors. According to a press release from the BCSO, Florida is a favorite destination for tourists and Bay County has some of the most beautiful and popular beaches. This means more people on the roads, more pedestrians and more bicyclists.

Operation Dry Streets will run from Friday through Sunday. All across the state law enforcement will be especially watching for traffic violators and those driving while impaired.

Drive responsibly and don't end up a statistic during Operation Dry Streets, the press release adds.
