San Diego dui lawyers report that law enforcement agencies from throughout San Diego County are again joining forces to conduct a “zero tolerance” alcohol enforcement detail.
On Friday, March 6, 2009, agencies participating in the San Diego DUI Avoid Grant will target the unincorporated communities of Fallbrook, Bonsall, Rainbow and Vista. This crackdown on alcohol related crimes and violations will target drunk drivers and public drunkenness. Participating agencies include the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, California Highway Patrol, San Diego PD, Oceanside PD, Carlsbad PD, La Mesa PD, Escondido PD, Coronado PD, California State Parks and San Diego County Probation.
All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. This operation is an effort to reduce those tragedies. Many more alcohol enforcement operations are scheduled throughout San Diego County thanks to a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety. It is the goal of law enforcement in San Diego County to do it’s best to provide a safe environment for everyone.
The Sheriff’s Department will coordinate this operation from the Sheriff’s Fallbrook Sub-Station, located at 388 E. Alvarado St. in Fallbrook. The media is invited to attend the main briefing which will commence at 1930 hours (7:30 pm). The Sheriff’s Mobile Command and Transportation Unit will be on hand to process arrests.
To pre-arrange a media ride-along for this event, please contact the Sheriff’s Public Affairs office at your earliest convenience (858-974-2259).
Perhaps this San Diego DUI checkpoint is in response to a recent death up there.
A 24-year-old Oceanside man died Monday from injuries he sustained when his Jeep drove into oncoming traffic the evening before, officials said.
The unidentified man was driving east on Lilac Road at Via Piedra about 8:20 p.m. Sunday when he crossed into the westbound lanes, the California Highway Patrol said.
His 1992 Jeep Cherokee crashed into a 2002 Toyota Tundra. The man in the Toyota suffered a broken elbow; his wife sustained minor injuries.
All three were taken to a hospital, where the driver of the Jeep died, the CHP said.
Authorities believe alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash.
Lilac Road was closed for three hours while authorities investigated the wreck and cleared the vehicles from the road.
