TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department purchased a new DUI enclosed cargo trailer in an effort to help reduce impaired driving across the county.

A grant from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety will fund the trailer, which will transport signage, cones and other related equipment to and from DUI sobriety checkpoints.

The trailer is covered in graphics that say "Get a DD, not a DUI," which the department hopes will remind people to think of the dangers of driving while impaired.

The PCSD hopes to reduce alcohol-related crashes and impaired driving on Tucson streets through education and intervention.

The grant will also help with DUI enforcement, according to a news release.
