For the second weekend of the National DUI Mobilization extra DUI Saturation Patrols will be deployed across Humboldt County. Additionally, all regularly scheduled traffic and patrol officers will continue efforts to stop and arrest DUI drivers during their normal shifts.

Police, Sheriff and the CHP are requesting motorists to help make the community safer: Report Drunk Drivers – Call 911. Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

DUI arrest data collection will continue through Labor Day midnight Monday, September 5, 2016. Avoid DUI programs, named for the number of police agencies in each county, will deploy Multiple/DUI Driver’s License Checkpoints and local Roving DUI patrols region-wide during this 18 day Summer/Labor Day Campaign.

    All you people are in danger of a sharp rebuke from Ernie B., especially since you named a name and are hiding behind your anonymous persona. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

  • I would suggest they have one at Rohnerville and School Streets sure to be a lot of action.

  • Actually I was agreeing with them. Just because I said that we can’t blame the cops that no witnesses will come forward and testify that she was the driver doesn’t mean that I’m not just as frustrated as everybody else.

    My test is, would I be surprised to find that someone else was actually driving. If a couple of eyewitnesses came forward and said somebody else was driving I would have to believe it because I can’t prove otherwise.

    I find it difficult to critisize the cops, because I just don’t know the real story.

    As far as the “anonymous” crap goes, you can say some pretty stupid stuff when you don’t have to own up to it.
    But, that’s okay, stupid can be entertaining too. Just not credible.
