Pasadena Police Department Prepares for a DUI Saturation Patrol

The Pasadena Police Department will be conducting a “Zero Tolerance”
DUI Saturation Patrol on Saturday, March 30, 2013. The program will
begin at 8:00 P.M. and will end at 3:00 A.M. This enforcement operation
will be in an effort to reduce and remove the number of impaired drivers
traveling on city streets. DUI programs are a useful and effective tool
for achieving the Pasadena Police Department’s goal of detecting and
removing impaired drivers from our streets while improving traffic
safety, saving lives and preventing injuries.
The Pasadena Police Department encourages people who are leaving home and planning on consuming alcoholic beverages, to select a designated driver prior to drinking or to simply telephone one of the many taxi cab services for a safe ride home.
In addition, it is a violation of law for any driver under the age of 21 years to operate a motor vehicle with any measurable amount of alcohol in their system. The public is encouraged to help keep our roadways safe and to ‘Report Drunk Drivers by Calling 911’ whenever you see a suspected drunk driver.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
