California Office of Traffic Safety Launches Impaired Driving Campaign

The California Office of Traffic Safety is committed to making Golden State roadways safer places, and a large part of that commitment involves focusing on drug and alcohol-related auto accidents. Because drunk and drugged driving causes thousands of accidents, injuries, and deaths throughout the state each year, the OTS goes to great lengths to support law enforcement and their efforts to crack down on DUI.

As part of their most recent campaign, the California Office of Traffic Safety has teamed up with the California Highway Patrol to increase DUI enforcement during a year-long campaign. The Reduced Impaired Driving II (RID II) campaign looks to make roadways safer through education efforts and increased enforcement.

According to the OTS, CHP officers will actively raise awareness about impaired driving through safety presentations and high visibility saturation patrols and checkpoints around the state. Inevitably, the efforts will likely result in more arrests for DUI. In the worst scenarios, overzealous officers concerned about increasing arrest numbers may infringe upon the rights of motorists when making stops or arrests.

Efforts like these are essential to public safety, but they do not mean that everyone who is stopped is automatically guilty of a crime. Remember, you are considered innocent until proven guilty and you have the right to challenge the claims made against you in court. You also have the right to be represented by skilled and experienced lawyers who can fight for your rights and future.
