Concord Police To Conduct DUI Enforcement Operation Tonight

September 25, 2020 14:00 pm · 13 comments

Additional officers from the Concord Police Department will be on patrol tonight until 2 a.m. looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

Drivers caught driving impaired and charged will face an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties, as well as a suspended license.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Why bother? It’s “under the influence of a controlled substance”. Nothing to look at here. Stop wasting money and time Concord police department.

will BLM be exempt?

Stop advertising these…..

the U S Supreme Court Ruled they have to advertise the check points.

Well there’s a VERY high probability that the drunks aren’t hanging out on the Claycord website… 🙂

@S:

Where did you read anything about checkpoints?

This was NOT a checkpoint. And if advertising enforcement operations prevents somebody from driving drunk and killing an innocent victim, isn’t that the outcome we’re striving for?

My bad…. I was to continue that Saturation type patrols do not…. I accidentally hit enter before I was ready… Too lazy to then add the rest.

Please except my apologies for this blunder….

I will punish myself by a Claycord restriction of 10 minutes…

Mighty costly these days – $13,500, suspended license, night in jail.
Thank you, CPD

It’s cheaper to burn, loot and steal.

I’d like to know how many DUI citations have been written and did those receiving them pay the fine?

Well, I had my 5th recently. I’m ashamed and riddled with guilt. I was sleeping in my car for 3 but it doesn’t matter. See, I’m an alcoholic and one that has been in a battle for my life the last 6 years. 7 months sober working on me. So far so good but all I have is today…….
