Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2007
As Labor Day approaches, Deputies and CHP Officers in San Diego and San Bernardino Counties say they plan to get tough on drunk drivers. The California Highway Patrol also announced on Monday that they will double their traffic safety endeavors over the Labor Day holiday weekend. The announcement may have something to do with the 18 people that died on California roadways over a 24 hour period over the recent Fourth of July weekend.
This crackdown is evident by the 14 arrests and 96 citations that were issued at a sobriety checkpoint last Saturday night on Mariposa Road in Victorville. The checkpoint was conducted by a task force including all 25 law enforcement agencies in San Bernardino County.
San Diego drunk driving offenses also go up over holiday weekends, especially along the beaches, so the police are preparing to step up their forces over the upcoming weekend. Statistics from the San Diego Police Department about last year's Labor Day weekend reveal that 13 DUI arrests were made on Mission Beach and Pacific beach alone, which are two of the most popular beaches in the county.
While holidays such as Labor Day are times to celebrate, they are also times when a lot of mistakes are made. When people make dangerous mistakes on the roadways, there are often legal consequences. Many people will likely be using the services of San Diego DUI lawyers after the upcoming weekend. San Diego DUI lawyers are knowledgeable about these sorts of cases, which tend to occur far more often on summer holidays such as Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day.
