News headline from the Riverside Police Department:
The Avoid the 30 DUI Campaign will be deploying officers this holiday weekend at DUI/Drivers License checkpoints and DUI Saturation Patrols countywide to arrest impaired drivers.
The Memorial Day weekend is witness to the kick off of summertime recreation and holiday travel, along with many college and high school graduations seeing thousands celebrate their accomplishments. The next 100 days will also see a rise in deaths and injuries as far too many individuals get behind the wheel impaired.
The enforcement campaign begins Friday night with DUI/Driver’s License checkpoints in the cities of Canyon Lake, Moreno Valley and Riverside with special DUI Saturation Patrols deploying in the cities of Blythe, Desert Hot Springs, Palm Springs, Riverside, Temecula and Rancho Mirage. More local DUI Saturation Patrols will be out on Saturday and Sunday nights on the cities of Menifee and Riverside.
The California Highway Patrol is deploying all available officers Memorial Day weekend onto freeways and county roads in their jurisdiction.
Funding for the Avoid Campaign is through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
