St. Patrick’s Day DUI Saturation Patrols in Turlock

The Turlock Police Department is telling people “don’t depend on dumb luck, designate a sober driver before the party begins” this St. Patrick’s Day.

St. Patrick’s Day is a popular night out to socialize with friends, family and coworkers.  However, with so many local establishments promoting alcohol sales or special promotional events, far too many drunk drivers head out onto streets, making it dangerous for all.
As a counter measure to all the ‘green beer’ on sale St. Patty’s Day, the Avoid the 12 DUI Task Force will deploy additional DUI Roving Saturation Patrols into the cities of Turlock, Modesto, Oakdale, and Ceres March 17th,  18th, and 19th, in our ongoing campaign to take careless, dangerous drunk or “buzzed” drivers off the road before they crash.
“Whether you are meeting a few friends at the local pub after work or attending a house party, if you plan on drinking, never drive while impaired; and never let your friends drive if you think they are impaired.  Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk,” said Sergeant Neil Cervenka.
According to Turlock Police, the extra Avoid DUI Saturation patrols will be supplementing regularly scheduled shift deployments planned for Thursday.  The specialized DUI Officers will be focusing in areas with high incidents of DUI collisions and arrests.
Turlock Police Department recommends the following easy steps, for a safe St. Patrick’s Day.
– 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 so you are sure to get home safely
– If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, don’t hesitate to Call 911
-And remember, 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.
“Driving buzzed or drunk is simply not worth the risk,” said Sgt Cervenka. “Don’t depend on dumb luck this St. Patrick’s Day. Give up your keys – designate your sober driver before the party begins.”
The Avoid the 12 DUI Campaign is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The coalition’s next DUI Campaigns are set for Cinco de Mayo and Memorial Day Weekend.
The Turlock Police Department is an active participant in the Crime Stoppers Program.  Callers can leave an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 and may be eligible for a cash reward.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
