                         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’.


2:19am       Unit Blk. Maynard                      Warrant
Ingleside Officers Hermosura and Zhao were dispatched to a report of two men not spreading good cheer. It was a fight between the current boyfriend and the ex-boyfriend of a resident on the block. When the officers arrived, the ex-boyfriend had run away, but was soon found at Mission and Maynard Streets by Ingleside Officers Ortega and Parker. A record check revealed that the ex-boyfriend had an active warrant for his arrest for domestic violence. He was transported to the County Jail and booked for the warrant. Report number: 160764025

11:22am     600 Blk. Campbell                    D.U.I
It was Christmas Day and while most were waking to the sounds of children screaming with delight, residents of Campbell Street instead woke to tires screeching and broken tail lights. A woman looked out her window and saw her parked green Mitsubishi had been struck by grey Acura and the Acura’s engine was revving. She told Ingleside Officers Sherry, Mora, Canchola, and Debellis she dialed 911 and went outside but the Acura had disappeared. The officers took the witness to Rutland and Leland where the Acura and its driver were stopped. She identified the man as the one who hit her car and drove away. The Acura driver showed obvious signs of intoxication and was asked to perform several roadside sobriety tests. He agreed and stumbled through several attempts while failing the exam. He was transported to Mission Station where a breath alcohol test revealed a blood alcohol concentration three times higher than the legal maximum. A computer check revealed he was driving with a suspended license after being convicted of a previous DUI. The suspect was taken to the county jail and booked for DUI. Report number: 161045719
