checkpoint update for California DUI lawyers

California DUI checkpoint in San Rafael last week yielded one arrest for suspected California DUI drunken driving and 20 assorted citations.

The California DUI checkpoint was from 7 p.m. Friday to 1 a.m. Saturday at Lincoln and Grand avenues.

California DUI Police also cited four people for driving with a suspended license, 15 for driving without having been issued a license, and one for possession of marijuana, said California DUI attorneys.

Police impounded 19 vehicles during the California DUI checkpoint, which was paid for with a California DUI grant, California DUI lawyers hear.

The Napa police are doing their part this Saturday to get drunk drivers off the road.

They will be conducting DUI saturation patrols within the city limits.
The patrols will be in areas where there has been a high number of traffic crashes and arrests involving drunk drivers.

Napa police is attempting to cut down on collisions involving DUI drivers. Police suggest those who have been drinking and believe they need to get behind the wheel of a car to call a cab, a friend, take the bus or even walk.
The funding for the DUI saturation patrols comes from a grant received from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
