CALIFORNIA DRUNK DRIVING NEWS - The Pasadena California DUI Police Department will conduct a California DUI / dRUNK dRIVING Enforcement Check Point on Friday, March 14, 2008.

The hours of California DUI ROADBLOCK operation will be conducted between the hours of 7:00 pm – 3:00 am. “The St. Patrick’s Day celebrations that typically occur around this time include a lot of drinking,” says Acting Chief of Police Christopher Vicino. “It is our intent to keep drunk drivers off the roads and this program is a proven and effective tool for achieving the Pasadena Police Department’s goal of removing impaired drivers from our streets.”

The potential for an impaired driver to become involved in a traffic collision is greater due to a driver’s slowed response or poor decision making while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. These types of California DUI enforcement programs also provides the police department an opportunity to educate the driving public in regards to safer driving habits and the consequences of California DUI - drinking and driving.

Funding for this California DUI program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

California DUI attorneys want to make sure the cops do this properly and in a constitutional manner.
