The city of Davis will be drawing crowds this Saturday for the Causeway Classic between UC Davis Aggies and Sacramento State Hornets. The ‘Avoid the Eight’ DUI Enforcement Task Force will also be out in big numbers looking for motorists suspected of drunk driving in California.
Law enforcement agencies will be joining forces for intensive CA DUI saturation patrols between noon and 6:00 pm Saturday. Included are officers from the California Highway Patrol, Yolo County Sheriff’s Department and Yolo County Probation Department, local police departments from Davis, West Sacramento, Sacramento, Winters and Woodland, as well as the UC Davis police department.
The ‘Avoid the Eight’ campaigns are aimed at warning motorists to avoid drinking and driving with a blood-alcohol content over the legal limit of .08%. The programs are funded by grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
