Riverside County sheriff's deputies will conduct extra DUI patrols in Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells and Palm Desert, starting Friday night.

The patrols -- scheduled from 7 p.m. to Saturday at 3 a.m. -- are intended to stop impaired drivers, and will be held in areas with high instances of DUI crashes and/or arrests, according to sheriff's Sgt. Dave Adams.

He said six people have died in DUI-related crashes in those cities over the past three years.

The patrols are funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
