Slow Down, San Rafael Police Awarded Grant for Traffic Safety Enforcement

November 6, 2012

The California Office of Traffic Safety has awarded the City of San Rafael Police Department a grant of $102,000.00 for traffic enforcement. San Rafael Police officers will use the state allocated funds in an effort to prevent traffic collisions.

As part of that effort the San Rafael Police will conduct a series of DUI saturation patrols, enforcement aimed at distracted driving and seat belt and child safety seat enforcement. Repeat DUI offenders will also be staked out as part of the traffic safety program.

A conviction for a first drunk driving offense in Marin County can result in punishment including probation, fines, a DUI school and up to 6 months in jail under the California Vehicle Code. Drivers with multiple offenses for driving under the influence face even greater punishment. Whether arrested for DUI in San Rafael, Mill Valley, Novato, Kentfield, or San Francisco, you need to call an experienced aggressive driving under the influence attorney for help.

For more information about driving under the influence charges, suspended license charges and traffic tickets in San Rafael, Mill Valley and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, or for a free consultation, call Marin County DUI attorney John Stanko at 415-755-8899, or toll free at 1-877-204-8900.
