The Santa Clara County's Sheriff's Office received some good news this month. It will be awarded a large grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety that will be used to cut down on DUI related accidents and fatalities in the county. After years of high DUI rates in the county, the Sheriff's Office was finally awarded a grant to help reduce these numbers. The grant, worth $101,500, will go solely towards programs aimed at getting drunk drivers off the streets. Programs such as DUI saturation points, checkpoints, DUI Task Force Deployments and license checkpoints will work toward capturing drunk drivers and hopefully deter those that are impaired from getting behind the wheel.
In addition to catching first-time offenders, police hope to locate and arrest those with multiple DUI offenses as well. There will be warrant sweeps conducted over the next few weeks to track down DUI offenders who have been caught leaving court hearings driving their own vehicles even though they are on suspended licenses as well as those wanted for other DUI-related offenses.
