                              DUI Saturation Patrols This Friday

San Francisco Police Department’s Traffic Unit will be conducting DUI saturation patrols on Friday, December 30, 2016 between the hours of 7:00 P.M. and 3:00 A.M. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely.

Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment by checking drivers for proper licensing, delaying motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. Recent statistics reveal that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.

Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000, not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out. Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the San Francisco Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Drivers – Call ‘9-1-1’.

Ingleside Officers Hopkins, Campos, and Laokwansathitaya decided to visit a business address that has a history of repeated arrests for narcotics, robberies, and violent crimes. Inside they noticed a man who they had arrested numerous times before for methamphetamine and other narcotic violations.

3:54pm       300 Blk. Alemany                           D.U.I
A motorist dialed 911 from his car telling dispatch that a hit and run suspect was pounding on his window, pulling his door handle, trying to get into the car. Ingleside Officers Cassinelli, Watts, Campos, Hopkins, and other units responded and when they arrived they ordered the suspect away from the other vehicle. The motorist who called police told the officers that he was rear ended by the suspect a few blocks away. When he motioned to the other driver to pull over so they could exchange information, the suspect made a “U” turn and sped off in the opposite direction. The victim followed and the suspect pulled over, but blocked the victim’s car, then exited his vehicle and began confronting the other motorist. That’s when the victim called police. The officers noticed the suspect had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, and had trouble walking. He failed a roadside sobriety test and the officers obtained a search warrant so that a blood alcohol test could be conducted by the department’s phlebotomist at Mission Station. From there, the suspect was transported to the county jail and booked for D.U.I. Report number: 1161032506
