Members of the Senior Volunteer Patrol or SVP patrolled parking lots to ensure cars were locked and valuables were not left in plain sight. A mangled SUV used in Sheriff’s Start Smart classes for new teen drivers was on display to remind people of the deadly consequences of California DUI or drunk driving, lawyers are told.
