According to a press release put out by the San Francisco Police Department, there will be a sobriety checkpoint on Saturday, March17, 2012. That day is of course St. Patrick’s Day. The officers will be mainly looking for drivers showing signs of intoxication, and driving on a suspended license. The DUI checkpoint will be set up at Geary Boulevard and Ninth Street, and will last from 8:30 p.m. until Sunday morning.
While the San Francisco checkpoint that has so far been announced, two other agencies have announced special DUI enforcement this weekend. Napa and Solano Counties have both announced that they will deploy more officers on overtime from 6:00 p.m. Friday until 6:00 a.m. Sunday. They will focus their enforcement on “drinking driver hotspots”. I’m sure this means they will be watching anyone coming out of the bars at about 2:00 a.m. very closely.
I will continue to check for other St. Patrick’s Day DUI enforcement announcements this week, and will report my findings on this blog.
