Two driving under the influence sobriety checkpoints are scheduled for St. Patrick’s Day in Alameda County. The two cities where the checkpoints will be set up are Berkeley and Livermore. The press release does not state exactly where the checkpoints will be.
Along with these two checkpoints, “saturation patrols” will be instituted Saturday night in the cities of Alameda, Oakland, and Fremont. This usually means that more officers will be out on the street, and they will be focusing their attention on downtown areas where drivers might be leaving bars. It goes without saying that St. Patrick’s Day is a terrible time to risk driving home after a few drinks. Whatever it costs to make alternative transportation arrangements will seem like a bargain next to paying for a DUI.
