March 11, 2012 (San Diego County) -- Don't push your luck on St. Patrick's Day, give your keys to a designated driver before partying. A DUI/Driver License checkpoint is scheduled in Encinitas on March 16th between 6:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. the next day. The County's Avoid the 14 DUI Task Force will also be conducting DUI patrols on St. Patrick's Day, March 17th. Last year during the St. Patrick's Day period, three people were killed and 96 others were seriously injured in DUI related crashes in California. Remember, Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving. Report drunk drivers, call 911.
February 4, 2012 (Sacramento) - The big game can mean big fun for football fans everywhere; however, rather than waiting until the fourth quarter to designate a driver, have a plan in place before the festivities begin. “We hope everyone can enjoy the fun by designating a driver before the game begins,” said California Highway Patrol (CHP) Commissioner Joe Farrow. “The safety of your family, friends, and other motorists should be your priority.”
