California Combats End of Summer Impaired Driving with Labor Day Weekend Drunk Driving Campaign

By Kelly Balamuth on September 2, 2011

As part of a nationwide measure by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the state of California is gearing up for enhanced enforcement against drunk and drug-impaired driving for the final weeks of summer, its finale being Labor Day weekend. The national plan is called “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” effective from August 19 through September 5, and utilizes a combination of “high-visibility enforcement and public awareness messaging,” according to the NHTSA.

Law enforcement officials and State Highway Safety Offices are working together during this campaign. While all states are unified by the national vision, specific approaches are detailed on the administration’s website. For California, the Golden State’s 41 countywide Avoid DUI task forces, in addition to 111 individual local authorities, are manning special checkpoints and saturation patrols spanning 98 percent of the state’s collective communities. Every one of the 41 task force areas have issued individual publicity releases and are running press events. The California Office of Traffic Safety is also involved, utilizing recent DUI fatality data to assist in promoting the clampdown in statewide releases.

For Labor Day weekend specifically, the California Highway Patrol is organizing a “Maximum Enforcement” campaign that puts 80 percent of available law officers on the roads. If you or a loved one has been injured in a Northern California car crash that you believe was the result of an impaired driver’s negligence, contact the Northern California car accident lawyers at Balamuth Harrington.
