Toledo police will conduct prom blitzes on Fridays and Saturdays this month and next month when proms are held within the city.
Additional patrols will be in and around the area of the proms. They will focus on catching motorists who are driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, not wearing seat belts, and committing other traffic violations.
The effort is funded through a $65,274 grant from the Ohio Department of Public Safety.
