The "Avoid the Eight" DUI Enforcement Task Force will conduct an intensive DU saturation enforcement and a checkpoint during the Memorial Day weekend.
The DUI checkpoint will be held beginning at 9 p.m. Friday and continue to 3 a.m. Saturday in Woodland, according to California DUI lawyers.

Participating agencies include officers from the California Highway Patrol, Yolo County Sheriff's Department, Yolo County Probation Department, and the Davis, West Sacramento, Winters, Woodland, and UC Davis police departments, per California DUI lawyers.

DUI "Avoid" campaigns are so named to encourage motorists to "avoid" being arrested for a DUI by not drinking and driving. Impaired driving is a crime which can end with deaths and injuries. DUI checkpoints and saturation enforcement is designed to both arrest impaired drivers and to serve as a warning to others to not drink and drive, California DUI lawyers are told.

Funding for the AVOID program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, California DUI attorney sources indicate.
