There are a lot of drunk and drugged drivers on the icy roads right now.  Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton says times are tough and it seems people are using more drugs and alcohol.   "We unfortunately are the ones responding to those horrific accidents, involving the impaired driver. Lets not forget that driving under the influence doesn't just involve alcohol. We see prescription medication, controlled substances, whether it's meth or marijuana or a alcohol or a combination of all of the above, it's a dangerous combination; speed and vehicles and driving under the influence or impaired.” Blanton says technology is helping police crack down on drinking and driving. He says many citizens use their cell phones to report suspected drunk drivers. Blanton was a guest this morning on KBND's “Your Town” this morning.
