Checkpoint for DUI in California tonight - Napa & Pasadena news

California DUI defense lawyers report that Napa police are doing their part this Friday to get drunken 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 suspected drunken drivers.

Napa police are attempting to cut down on collisions involving suspected 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.

Pasadena Police Department is conducting two enforcement details with an aim of reducing traffic collisions or deaths resulting from drunk driving and illegal street racing.

The department is scheduled to conduct a DUI saturation enforcement detail from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, Jan. 23.

The illegal street racing enforcement detail is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 28.

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