Cinco de Mayo DUI Saturation Patrols in Orange County

Cinco de Mayo is a time for Southern Californians to celebrate Mexican heritage and culture, and many people get together with friends and family at parties, barbeques, festivals and other celebrations. Alcohol plays a part in many of these festivities, and law enforcement is taking notice.

Orange County law enforcement agencies are focusing on preventing drunk driving and arresting offenders this Cinco de Mayo. Increased patrols were already deployed over the weekend, and drivers can expect to see more today and tonight. The "Avoid the 38" DUI Task Force, which refers to the number of participating Orange County law enforcement agencies, will have extra patrols out, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

In Santa Ana, for example, residents were warned that lane restrictions and road closures would be in effect in some areas, along with increased police presence. The Santa Ana Police Department issued a city advisory to this effect, noting that the department would be "deploying extra police personnel to deal with the influx of cruiser activity experienced on Cinco de Mayo…"

According to a statement from the Orange County Sheriff Department's Traffic Bureau, "Cinco de Mayo has unfortunately become one of the most dangerous days of the year, all because of drunk driving." DUI saturation patrols are intended to deter drunk drivers and to catch anyone who gets behind the wheel while drunk to prevent serious injuries and deaths from resulting auto accidents.

The next countywide deployment involving the "Avoid the 38" DUI Task Force is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, May 23-28.

If you are planning on taking part in Cinco de Mayo festivities, be prepared to face an increased police presence throughout Orange County, with a focus on DUI prevention and arrests. Arrange for transportation or have a friend or family member as a designated driver. If you are pulled over and arrested on suspicion of DUI, make sure you take immediate action to protect your rights and interests by calling an Orange County DUI attorney.
