Nevada County DUI Task Force will be deploying DUI saturation patrols throughout the county on Cinco De Mayo, starting at 7:00 p.m. Saturday, May 5, 2012. Additionally, CHP will be deploying saturation patrols onto freeways and in unincorporated county jurisdictions to stop, test and
arrest impaired drivers who fail to use a designated driver. Grass Valley Captain Rex Marks encourages everyone to drive safely.
Cinco De Mayo is a night when dangerous and often deadly outcomes occur because another impaired driver hits the road drunk. DUI statistics indicate the greatest number of DUI deaths and injuries occur late Saturday night early Sunday morning which is why law enforcement will be out in force as a deterrent.
