DUI Checkpoint in Downtown Colusa on Friday

Drunk and drugged driving remains the number one killer on our roadways, with nearly 802 DUI deaths and 24,000 Alcohol Involved Injuries reported statewide. The “Avoid the 9” DUI Task Force is stepping up enforcement efforts to crack down, catch and arrest impaired drivers who put themselves and others at risk.

With the Independence Day holiday being one of the deadliest holidays of the year, a sobriety DUI checkpoint will be conducted on Friday, July 3, 2015 starting at 6 PM to Saturday, July 4, 2015 at 1 AM in downtown Colusa.

Besides the DUI checkpoint, Officers from the Colusa, Williams, and Marysville Police Departments and the California Highway Patrol will deploy a DUI saturation patrol throughout the weekend. Officers will show zero tolerance for impaired drivers.

The “Avoid the 9” DUI Task Force reminds everyone that there are numerous consequences as a result of being caught driving impaired, such as the risk of killing or harming others, jail time, insurance hikes, potential loss of a driver’s license, just to name a few.

The “Avoid the 9” DUI Task Force recommends these simple tips for a safe Fourth of July:

  1. Plan a safe way home before the fun begins
  2. Before drinking, designate a sober driver
  3. If you are impaired, call a sober friend or family member
  4. If you happen to see an impaired driver, call 911
  5. If you know someone who is going to drive impaired, take their keys and help them make arrangements to get where they are going safely.

The Marysville Police Department is the host agency for the “Avoid the 9” Campaign and funding for the “Avoid the 9” campaign is from a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
