Task force targets impaired drivers this holiday weekend

The Avoid the 8 DUI Task Force is deploying officers at sobriety checkpoints and in countywide saturation patrols this Memorial Day weekend to stop and arrest drunken or drugged drivers.

Along with warm weather and start of the vacation season, it’s also the season for college and high school graduations. With so many reasons for celebrations, law enforcement is sending two messages:

* Don’t drink and drive, or ride with someone who has been drinking; and

* Extra officers will working to stop and arrest those who drive impaired.

Heightened patrols kick off Friday night with a sobriety checkpoint in the city of Woodland and in an unincorporated area of Yolo County. More saturation patrols will be out on Saturday and Sunday nights on the cities Winters and West Sacramento.

Also, the California Highway Patrol is deploying all available officers onto local freeways and county roads throughout the Memorial Day weekend as part of its maximum enforcement period.

Funding for the Avoid DUI Task Force is by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
