Avoid the 25 Anti-DUI Task Force Reminds Everyone to Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over
Agenices involved in the Avoid the 25 summer mobilization that started on August 15, 2014 have so far made at least 65 arrests for DUI. There have been 12 DUI related collisions.
The Avoid the 25 anti-DUI task force is aggressively looking for impaired drivers on streets, roads and freeways throughout Contra Costa County. During the mobilization, motorists will see DUI/Drivers license checkpoints, a multi-agency anti-DUI strike team, local roving anti-DUI saturation patrols, a DUI warrant/probation sweep going after offenders with outstanding DUI warrants, and a DUI court-sting targeting suspended drivers who were ordered by a judge not to drive.
The Avoid the 25 anti-DUI task force funding is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which reminds everyone to – Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1. The Office of Traffic Safety is offering a free mobile app – DDVIPCA.COM – aimed at thanking sober designated drivers with perks and free offers.
The mobilization runs through Labor Day weekend.
