San Diego County DUI Law Center alerts motorists to this week’s 4th of July California drunk driving checkpoint locations so far, while recapping last night’s San Diego DUI checkpoint in Imperial Beach.
Fourth of July is a celebration of our country’s birthday, not getting a San Diego DUI, lawyers hope. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is committed to arresting drunk drivers and taking them off San Diego roadways.
Watch for increased San Diego DUI patrols by deputies across the county beginning on Thursday, July 3rd through Sunday, July 6th.
San Diego DUI Deputies will also take part in a San Diego DUI checkpoint on Saturday, July 5th from 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. at an undisclosed location within the city of San Diego.
The Sheriff’s Department arrested 46 people for DUI during the Fourth of July enforcement period in 2013. Deputies arrested 26 people for drunk driving during the Independence Day enforcement period in 2012.
“I cannot stress this enough: don’t drink and drive this Fourth of July weekend,” said Sheriff Bill Gore. “By doing so, you put your life in danger, as well as those of other drivers on the road. Remember: DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER!”
