Chino Hills - March 17, 2012

Everybody may be Irish on St. Patrick's Day but nobody should drive drunk after celebrating Ireland's patron saint this Saturday, March 17, 2012.

The Avoid the 25 - San Bernardino County DUI Campaign will be deploying additional officers on overtime this weekend, supporting routine traffic and patrol officers and focusing on drinking driver hotspots. Police, sheriff and CHP officers will have a "zero tolerance" response toward impaired drivers who fail to use a designated sober driver.

"St. Patrick's Day is one of the most widely celebrated saint's days in the world, but all too often it shares that great distinction with a far lesser one - too many people are driving drunk and killing or maiming themselves and others on the road as a result," said Police Chief Bill Lenew. "Even if you've think you've had only a few drinks and are just feeling 'buzzed,' don't kid yourself because Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving."

Last year during the St. Patrick's Day period, there were 3 people killed and 96 seriously injured in traffic crashes across California involving at least one driver or motorcyclist with a BAC of .08 percent or higher, according to statistics compiled by the California Office of Traffic Safety.

The Avoid the 25 San Bernardino County DUI Campaign is reminding football fans watching this year's Super Bowl game with friends and family to make the right decision before kickoff and game plan in a designated sober driver.

Law Enforcement joins with the national "Fans Don't Let Fans Drive Drunk" message from the National Football League, the California Office of Traffic Safety, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management Coalition.

The Avoid the 25 DUI Task Force will deploy special roving DUI patrols on Sunday in several communities throughout the area, including Redlands, in an effort to stop and arrest drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs.

These DUI patrols are, in addition to regularly scheduled patrol officers, all looking for the signs of an intoxicated driver behind the wheel.

Redlands Police arrested one person for driving under the influence during a grant-funded sobriety checkpoint Friday.

Sixty-three vehicles passed through the checkpoint on northbound Church Street between Brockton and Lugonia avenues. In addition to the DUI arrest, two drivers were cited for driving without a license and two cited for driving with suspended licenses.

Redlands - January 27, 2012

Redlands Police will conduct a grant-funded sobriety/driver's license checkpoint beginning at 10 p.m. Friday through 4 a.m. Saturday on northbound Church Street between Brockton and Lugonia avenues.

On Monday, officers on grant-funded overtime cited 31 drivers for violations including speeding, running red lights and stop signs, illegal U-turns on Pioneer Avenue in front of Citrus Valley High School, talking on cell phones and failing to yield for pedestrians in crosswalks.

DUI checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunken and drugged driving deterrence.

Officers contact drivers passing through the checkpoints for signs of alcohol and drug impairment. Grant-funded drug recognition experts staff most of the checkpoints.

DUI checkpoints, along with regularly scheduled high visibility DUI enforcement, are proven strategies with the goal of removing impaired drivers from the road and heightening awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), sobriety checkpoint programs can yield considerable cost savings: $6 for every $1 spent.

In December 2009, 753 people were killed nationwide in crashes that involved drivers or motorcycle riders with blood alcohol concentrations of .08 or higher. In California, 57 individuals died on the state's streets and highways.

The checkpoint was held from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Sierra Avenue, north of Randall Avenue in the central part of the city. This location was chosen in part due to a recent double fatality which was believed to have been caused as a result of a possible DUI, police said.


As a result of this operation, four arrests were made for driving under the influence, including one person who additionally had three outstanding DUI warrants and fled from police and endangered a child passenger, police said.

Four persons were arrested for having outstanding warrants, two of which were DUI warrants.

The final two arrests were a drug arrest and an assault on a police officer, respectively.

Redlands - December 16, 2011 - January 2, 2011

As you celebrate the holiday season enjoying traditions, food, family and fun, be reminded that police, sheriff and the CHP will be out in force during the holiday season from Dec. 16, 2011, to Jan. 2, 2012, to arrest anyone caught driving drunk behind the wheel.

"RUOK?" is the text message version of the often heard question, "Are you okay to drive?"  If you have to ask someone the question, you already know the answer.  You know they have had too much to drink or are showing signs of being "buzzed."  You know that they are not OK to drive.  Asking the question doesn't relieve you of the responsibility.  Call them a cab, take them home yourself, offer your couch.

Four DUI/ Driver's License Checkpoints, Multi Agency DUI Task Force deployments and two roving DUI patrols are scheduled locally in partnership with law enforcement statewide and around the county during the Winter Holiday Anti-DUI Campaign.    DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence.  Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Grant funded Drug Recognition Experts will be staffing most of the checkpoints.  

Checkpoints are scheduled beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16, through 4 a.m. Saturday in the southbound lanes of Cajon Street south of Cypress Avenue and beginning at 10 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, until 4 a.m. Sunday in the westbound lanes of Redlands Boulevard between State and Eighth streets.

DUI Checkpoints, along with regularly scheduled high visibility DUI enforcement, are proven strategies with the goal of removing impaired drivers from the road and heightening awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), sobriety checkpoint programs can yield considerable cost savings: $6 for every $1 spent.

"There will be no spreading holiday cheer behind the bars of a jail cell," said Sgt Rick Smith. "Don't let your 2011 holiday season end in an arrest or worse, death.  Remember, whether you've had way too many or just one too many, it's not worth the risk."

In December 2009, 753 people were killed nationwide in crashes that involved drivers or motorcycle riders with blood alcohol concentrations of .08 or higher.  In California, 57 individuals died on the state's streets and highways.

"The message is simple, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.  Drinking alcohol or being under the influence of drugs do not mix with driving.  If you plan to consume alcohol, you should also plan not to get behind the wheel of a vehicle or ride a motorcycle," said Lt Travis Martinez.  

 Redlands Police Department recommends these simple tips for a safe holiday season:   



  • Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin;

  • Before drinking, designate a sober driver and leave your car keys at home;

  • If you're impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation;

  • Use a local sober ride program;

  • If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, don't hesitate to contact your local law enforcement, Call 911; and

  • And remember, "RUOK?" is a ridiculous question.  If you think they've had too much, they probably have.  Help him or her make other arrangements to get home safely.


The national Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over crackdown is led by the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and NHTSA, with the California Avoid DUI Task Force Campaign combining high-visibility enforcement and heightened public awareness through publicity.

San Bernardino County - October 28th - October 31st
 
As party-going ghosts and goblins celebrate Halloween this October, the Avoid the 25 San Bernardino County DUI Task Force reminds everyone to keep the party off the road. Three extra DUI Saturation Patrols will be out in force with extra officers looking to stop and arrest 'Drunk' or 'Buzzed' drivers. Additionally, every patrol officer and traffic officer on routine patrol countywide will be on alert for the tell-tale signs of impairment.

Halloween is a time when kids and adults dress in costumes and have fun. Remember to be responsible and plan ahead. "It's just not worth the risk to get behind the wheel if you have been drinking," said Michael Newcombe, Rancho Cucamonga Police Chief. 

Nighttime is an especially dangerous time to be on the road. But this weekend and Halloween night is one of the deadliest times of the year for impaired drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 48 percent of all highway fatalities across the nation on Halloween night (6 p.m. Oct. 31 to 5:59 a.m. Nov. 1) in 2009 involved a driver or a motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher.

"Many people spend hours preparing their Halloween costumes and party plans but never plan ahead for a Designated Driver. A DUI conviction can cost thousands of dollars and could be avoided by planning ahead said Chief Newcombe."

DUI Checkpoints along with regularly scheduled high visibility DUI enforcement serves as a proven deterrent with the goal of removing impaired drivers and heightened awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

The Avoid the 25 DUI Task Force recommends these simple tips for a safe Halloween celebration:
• Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin.
• Before drinking, designate a sober, 'Non Drinking' driver. 
• If you're impaired, take a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation.
• If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, don't hesitate to Report Drunk Drivers, Call 911.
• And remember, Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk. If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely. 

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

Nighttime is an especially dangerous time to be on the road. But this weekend and Halloween night is one of the deadliest times of the year for impaired drivers.

"Far too many people spend hours and hours preparing their Halloween costumes and party plans," said Sgt Rick Smith.   "But too often impaired drivers never plan ahead for their Designated Driver and end up making the roads scarier than a horror show."

The Sheriff's Department will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on Wednesday, October 19, 2011 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., in the County area of San Bernardino.

In an effort to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes, DUI checkpoints are conducted to identify offenders and get them off the street, as well as educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving.

All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers.

This DUI/Drivers License checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies, as well as insuring drivers have a valid driver's license.

A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers.

A DUI checkpoint is a proven effective method for achieving this goal.

By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving.

Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested.

Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs - Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest.

The public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 911 if they see a suspected impaired driver.

Redlands - October 8, 2011

The Redlands Police Department, the State Office of Traffic Safety, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and law enforcement officials want to remind everyone to designate a sober driver if they plan to drink alcohol this Columbus Day weekend.

The Redlands Police Department will conduct a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint in the northbound lanes of Orange Street, south of Pearl Avenue, from 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, through 4 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 9. 

"We continue to see far too many people hurt or killed as a result of impaired driving. Please do your part to stop this senseless crime," said Christopher J. Murphy, Director of the California Office of Traffic Safety.  "To help ensure that this happens, the Avoid the 25 partners are dedicated to arresting impaired driving.  To help, we ask everyone; 'Report Drunk Drivers, Call 911!'" 

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

If you are hosting a party:


  • Remember, you can be held liable and prosecuted if someone you served ends up in an impaired-driving crash.

  • Make sure all of your guests designate their sober drivers in advance, or help arrange ride-sharing with other sober drivers.

  • Serve lots of food and include lots of non-alcoholic beverages at the party.

  • Stop serving alcohol before the party ends and begin serving coffee and dessert.

  • Keep the numbers for local cab companies handy, and take the keys away from anyone who is thinking of driving while impaired.


If you are attending a party or at a sports bar or restaurant:


  • Designate your sober driver before the party begins and leave your car keys at home.

  • Avoid drinking too much alcohol too fast. Pace yourself-eat enough food, take breaks, and alternate with non-alcoholic drinks.

  • If you don't have a designated driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home; call a cab, friend, or family member to come and get you; or just stay where you are and sleep it off until you are sober.

  • Never let a friend get behind the wheel of their vehicle if you think they are about to drive while impaired. Remember, Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk.

  • Always buckle up - it's still your best defense against other impaired drivers.

Redlands - September 1st & 2nd, 2011

Redlands Police will continue along with nearly 10,000 other law enforcement agencies nationwide in support of an intensive crackdown on impaired driving through Sept. 5, known as "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over." 


Two DUI/Driver's License Checkpoints are scheduled from 10 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1, through 3 a.m. Friday, Sept. 2, in the southbound lanes of Cajon Street, south of Cypress Avenue and beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2, through 3 a.m. Saturday in the westbound lanes of Redlands Boulevard west of Eureka Street. 

Three people were arrested for driving under the influence during a sobriety checkpoint in the eastbound lanes of Citrus Avenue Friday, Aug. 26. Another was arrested on a felony warrant. Three people were cited for driving without a license and another for driving on a suspended license. A total of 150 vehicles passed through the checkpoint. 

On Saturday, Aug. 27, two people were arrested for driving under the influence and two cited for driving without a license during a sobriety checkpoint in the southbound lanes of Tennessee Street. A total of 229 vehicles passed through the checkpoint. One person was arrested for driving under the influence during a targeted patrol Monday, Aug. 29.

The crime of impaired driving is a serious one. In 2009 alone, 10,839 people died in crashes in which a driver or motorcycle rider was at or above the legal limit, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The age group with the highest percentage of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities in motor vehicle traffic crashes was the 21-to-24 age group.

"All too often, innocent, law-abiding people suffer tragic consequences and the loss of loved ones due to this careless disregard for human life. Because we're committed to ending the carnage, we're intensifying enforcement during the crackdown. Since twice as many alcohol-impaired accidents occur over the weekend and four times as many occur at night, we will be especially vigilant during these high-risk times when impaired drivers are most likely to be on our roads," said Redlands Police Sgt Rick Smith.

The San Bernardino County Avoid the 25 Task Force will also deploy DUI Driver's License Checkpoints, Multi Agency DUI Task Force operations and local Roving DUI patrols during the 18-day Summer/Labor Day Campaign. Redlands PD will conduct five DUI checkpoints and two DUI Saturation Patrols during the that period.  

"Our message is simple and unwavering: if we find you driving impaired, we will arrest you. No exceptions," said Sgt Smith. "Even if you beat the odds and manage to walk away from an impaired-driving crash alive, the trauma and financial costs of a crash or an arrest for driving while impaired can still destroy your life."

According to Redlands PD, violators will face jail time, loss of their driver licenses, or being sentenced to use ignition interlocks. Their insurance rates go up. Other financial hits include attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work, and the potential loss of job or job prospects. When family, friends and co-workers find out, violators can also face tremendous personal embarrassment and humiliation.

The national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over crackdown is led by NHTSA with the California Avoid DUI Task Force Campaign combining high-visibility enforcement and heightened public awareness through publicity. For more information, visit the High-Visibility Enforcement Campaign Headquarters at www.StopImpairedDriving.org.
