Driving Under the Influence

Impaired drivers are the most dangerous violators on the roadways. To reduce the number of drunk drivers on our roadways, the Police Department conducts saturation patrols and DUI checkpoints at various times throughout the year, which are funded in part by a grant through the Office of Traffic Safety.

California courts pay serious attention to violations involving children under the age of 16 who are not properly secured inside a vehicle. If cited, drivers may receive one (1) “point count” on their driving record and a fine.
