Orange County Law Enforcement to Crack Down on DUIs During Halloween Weekend

Halloween is a popular holiday among children and adults, with many of the adult festivities involving alcohol. Because of this, Halloween sees a significant increase in alcohol-related accidents, injuries, and deaths – which is typical of most holidays. Knowing that the risks for alcohol-related incidents increase on holidays and on weekends, law enforcement officers throughout Orange County and the country will be cracking down tonight and the following Saturday to arrest motorists who drive under the influence ( DUI).

Officials from Orange County law enforcement agencies announced this week that they will be uniting the "Avoid the 38" Task Force. The task force involves 38 different OC law enforcement agencies that will be working together to conduct the following:

  • Sobriety Checkpoints – Officers across the County will be setting up checkpoints at various locations to look for motorists who may be driving under the influence. The checkpoints will also serve to check drivers for driver's licenses, warrants, and probation violations.
  • Saturation Patrols – Saturation patrols involve more patrol cars on the streets looking for signs of impaired driving, such as swerving, cars with their headlights off, and other signs. They will also be responding to calls from concerned witnesses who report drunk or drugged drivers.

The Avoid the 38 Task Force – which is being funded by grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) – has been successful in making a number of DUI arrests during the holidays, with the most recent effort occurring on Labor Day Weekend. Officials are urging drivers to drink responsibly or plan for a ride.

At the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry, Inc., our Orange County DUI attorneys have worked with many clients who were arrested during periods of increased DUI enforcement. As always, our legal team is available to immediately help anyone who has been arrested and would like to learn more about their rights, driving privileges, and how we can fight on their behalf.
