San Diego Sheriff’s Department unilaterally changes the drunk driving law in Del Mar, Encinitas, Solana Beach and San Diego from .08% for a DUI to “Zero Tolerance” without legal authority, attorney sayrick
Who gave the police the right to change the California drunk driving law from .08% to “Zero Tolerance,” San Diego DUI lawyers ask?
From 08/22/2014 to 08/23/2014 5:00 pm to 2:00 am in Del Mar, Encinitas, San Diego, and Solana Beach, San Diego area DUI Deputies from the San Diego Sheriff’s Department with Police Officers from San Diego Police Department, SDSU Police Department, and UC San Diego Police Department, conducted San Diego DUI Enforcement Patrols to crackdown on drunk driving in an effort to lower deaths and injuries in and around the Del Mar Race Track and after the evening entertainment that was held at the race track.
The San Diego AVOID Agencies had seven teams of deputies and officers who conduct 70 San Diego traffic stops, where 17 people were evaluated for San Diego DUI – driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and three people were arrested for San Diego drunk driving/driving under the influence of alcohol. Four San Diego drivers were cited for driving without a driver’s license. There were eight additional San Diego traffic citations issued and two vehicles were impounded.
The San Diego “Zero Tolerance” DUI Saturation Patrols were unlawfully targeting those who still don’t heed the message to designate a sober driver before their celebrations begins. Funding for this San Diego DUI program is through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Police, San Diego Sheriff and the San Diego CHP encourage all motorists to watch and report impaired drivers each and every trip around town or during summer vacations: Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1 anytime motorists encounter that dangerous driver.
