State traffic officials revealed the locations of planned driving under the influence patrols on a website for motorists.

Before hitting the road, steer to waTikiLeaks.com to find police patrols in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. The interactive map includes dates, times and locations for planned DUI patrols, such as the emphasis on Issaquah roads during Labor Day weekend.

Though sharing information to help motorists potentially avoid tickets and arrests might seem counterintuitive, officials said the website is another method to promote safe and sober driving on a community level.

The website also features a mobile version, so users can view the information on smart phones, and sharing options to post information to Twitter or Facebook.

Information on waTikiLeaks.com is posted by local traffic safety task forces participating in Target Zero teams.

Washington Traffic Safety Commission officials announced the website’s launch Tuesday.

    This seems counter productive to having the patrols. Sure, let’s let all the irresponsible people who choose to drink and drive know where NOT to go. It makes me feel safer, for sure….

Got something to say?
