The annual "Avoid the 18" program will kick off Friday as law enforcement officers try to reduce accidents caused by California drunk or drugged drivers.
The winter holiday crackdown is a 19-day California DUI enforcement effort that will end on New Years Day.

California DUI officers expect an increase in the usual number of traffic stops with an increase in California drunk driving sobriety and driver's license checkpoints, in-city California DUI patrols and maximum enforcement by the California Highway Patrol.

Seaside police plan a California DUI sobriety checkpoint for Dec. 21. California DUI Police in Greenfield have scheduled California DUI checkpoints for two consecutive Fridays, starting Dec. 21.

All departments will emphasize California DUI enforcement with officers on regular beats. Several departments have special plans aimed at drumming up business for California DUI criminal defense attorneys.

Carmel California police will adjust patrol hours to cover prime California DUI times.

Monterey Police Department will field two-officer California DUI / drunk driving / DWI enforcement teams on overtime between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m.

California DWI Police in Greenfield will adjust patrol hours for prime California DUI times.

Seaside police plan California DUI saturation patrols throughout the campaign, will adjust hours to cover prime California DUI times and have posted overtime.

Officer Jesus Yanez of the King City police will be on duty throughout the holidays, said Capt. Bruce Miller. Yanez has made 126 DUI arrests since the beginning of the year. "We never have had an officer achieve such a high number of California DUI arrests in the history of King City," he said. Yanez is a California drunk driving training officer, and Miller expects him to pass his expertise along to other California Drunk Driving officers.

California DUI attorneys will see an increase in calls requesting assistance.
