Local law enforcement will be out stepping up DUI enforcement for the Fourth of July holiday.
BPD says it doesn’t matter if it’s drugs or alcohol, if you’re impaired you shouldn’t be driving.
Police said during last year’s Fourth of July holiday, 17 people died across the state in alcohol-related crashes, while 430 others were injured.
CHP will also have extra officers on patrol for its maximum enforcement period now through midnight on Wednesday.
CHP said during a four-day enforcement period last year, 47 people died across the state in DUI crashes.
A first time DUI arrest could cost you up to $10,000 in fines and insurance premiums.
If you’re going to drink, get a designated driver.
You can report drunk drivers by calling 911.
