San Diego Sheriff's Department Will Continue DUI Crackdown Efforts through New Year's

The San Diego Sheriff's Department has concluded its Christmas enforcement crackdown. The Department conducted sobriety checkpoints and sting operations targeting DUI offenders. The Sheriff‘s Department will conduct another initiative over the New Year's weekend.

Over the Christmas weekend, approximately 658 people were arrested for DUI across California. This enforcement went on for a little longer than usual, because Christmas Eve was on Friday. The holiday crackdown began on Thursday at 6 PM, and ended on midnight on Sunday. According to the San Diego Sheriff's Department, the number of alcohol-related accident fatalities over the Christmas holiday weekend this year was down from last year.

The San Diego Sheriff's Department, the California Highway Patrol and San Diego criminal Defense attorneys would advise motorists to avoid driving under the influence over the New Year's holiday. It's important to make plans to travel safely over the weekend. It's not just California Highway Patrol and San Diego Sheriff’s Department officers, who you can expect on the roads this New Year's weekend. Local police departments are also participating in the statewide efforts against DUI. You can expect a number of sobriety checkpoints around San Diego County, as well as large numbers of officers patrolling the roads. Most departments have all their police officers on duty for the New Year’s crackdown on drunk driving, and some have hired extra officers for the holiday.

San Diego criminal defense attorneys would advise motorists to take a designated driver service that is being offered for free by the Automobile Club of Southern California. This year too, the Auto Club is offering its Tipsy Tow service between 6 PM on New Year's Eve and 6 AM the following morning. Drivers can get themselves and their vehicles a free ride home.
