DUI task force starts today, continues through New Year’s Day
LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Los Angeles County law enforcement agencies will be out in force today through New Year’s Day to crack down on motorists who drive while impaired.
The “Avoid the 100 DUI Task Force” will include dozens of sobriety/driver’s license checkpoints and more than 200 “roving DUI saturation patrols” in various areas of the county.
“Our task force will be highly visible during this enforcement period, and those suspected of driving while intoxicated will be shown zero tolerance if they are over the limit,” said Glendora Police Chief Rob Castro.
“The December holiday season is the `most wonderful time of the year,’ and we are going to keep our roads safe for travelers heading to visit friends and family,” Castro said. “This holiday, if you choose to drive drunk, we will be looking for you, we will stop you, and you will be arrested.”
Castro urged people to use a designated driver or public transportation if they have been drinking.
