HUMBOLDT PARK — Police will be on the lookout for drunken drivers in Humboldt Park this weekend.

The DUI Strike Force patrol will be out from 7 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday near North and Albany avenues in the Shakespeare Police District.

Officers will saturate the area to find drivers who are drunk, speeding or not wearing their seat belts.

During a similar effort on the South Side in July, three people were arrested for drunken driving, nine cars were towed and 55 tickets were issued.
