DUI task force plans St. Patrick’s Day patrols

From page A3 | March 16, 2014 |

Yolo County’s Avoid the 8 DUI task force will deploy roving DUI patrols on Monday, St. Patrick’s Day, in several communities throughout the area, looking to stop and arrest drivers who are impaired by alcohol or drugs.

The Woodland office of the California Highway Patrol also announced it will staff a DUI and driver’s license checkpoint somewhere in the unincorporated area of Yolo County on Monday.

Crashes involving drunken drivers killed an estimated 270 people nationwide on St. Patrick’s Day in 2011, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Avoid the 8 task force suggests the following steps to ensure a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day:

* Before the festivities begin, plan a way to safely get home at the end of the night;

* Before drinking, designate a sober driver and leave your car keys at home;

* If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation to get home safely;

* If available, use your community’s sober ride program;

* Call 911 if you see a suspected drunken driver on the road. You could save a life; and

* If you know people who are about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.

The Avoid the 8 task force is funded through a grant by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
