Yolo County Drivers – Don’t Drive Drunk on Halloween

The Yolo County DUI task force, the Avoid the 8, will be conducting additional patrols tonight in an effort to stop and arrest drunk drivers. Local police officers, sheriff’s deputies and CHP officers will crack down on DUI and impaired drivers with their aggressive Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement effort.

According to NHTSA, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Halloween is one of the deadliest holidays of the year. NHTSA says that 52 percent of all national fatalities occurring on Halloween night from 2007 to 2011 involved a drunk driver.

Suspended license and DUI checkpoints and aggressive countywide DUI task forces are common throughout California. Funding for these drunk diving enforcement programs comes from the Office of Traffic Safety via grants from NHTSA.

If you are charged with a DUI in Marin County you could be punished with probation, fines, a DUI school and up to 6 months in jail under the California Vehicle Code. Punishment is greater for people with multiple offenses for driving under the influence. Whether arrested for DUI in Vallejo, Benicia, American Canyon, or Fairfield, you need to call an experienced aggressive driving under the influence attorney for help.
