Auburn crack down on drunk driving

-A +A
Local law enforcement is cracking down on drunk drivers this weekend. Agencies from the Avoid the 7 DUI Task Force will be holding a saturation patrol in Auburn Saturday night to stop and arrest drivers who have been drinking. The task force includes the California Highway Patrol, the Auburn, Rocklin, Lincoln, and Roseville police departments, as well as State Parks and the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. Officer Todd Rayback, of the Lincoln Police Department, said he hopes a strong message comes out of the campaign. “Drunk driving is simply not worth the risk,” Rayback said. “Not only do you risk killing yourself or someone else, but the trauma and financial costs of a crash or an arrest for impaired driving can be significant. Violators often face jail time, the loss of their driver’s license, higher insurance rates, attorney fees, time away from work and dozens of other expenses. So don’t take the chance.” ~Staff report
