DUI Saturation Enforcement Program

first_imgPublic Safety DUI Saturation Enforcement Program Published on Thursday, January 15, 2015 | 1:35 pm Officers from the Pasadena Police Department’s DUI Enforcement Team will be deploying to stop and arrest alcohol and drug-impaired drivers in the Department’s ongoing traffic safety campaign. DUI Saturation Patrols will deploy on Friday, January 23, 2015, between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. in areas with high frequencies of DUI collisions and/or arrests.Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have claimed 5 lives and resulted in 80 injury crashes harming 117 of our friends and neighbors in Pasadena.In California, this deadly crime led to 774 deaths because someone failed to designate a sober driver. Alcohol and drug-impaired deaths still make up the largest category of overall vehicle fatalities with 29 percent of all deaths caused by a drunk driver. A DUI Saturation Patrol is a proven effective method to lower these numbers. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving.Pasadena PD reminds everyone that they can assist in preventing this crime from ever occurring. If you are planning a gathering or celebration with alcohol included, or if you are out on the town, plan ahead and designate a non-drinking sober driver. A DUI and drug-impaired arrest can cost up to $10,000 or even more, including time in jail, the loss of your driver license and high insurance rates.These enforcement efforts are funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
