One Arrested During DUI Enforcement Patrol In Concord


Concord Police arrested one driver on suspicion of DUI while conducting a DUI enforcement patrol on Friday.

Concord Police Department reminds the public that impaired driving is not just from alcohol. Some prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs may interfere with driving.


While medicinal and recreational marijuana are legal, driving under the influence of marijuana is illegal.

Funding for this DUI Patrol was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

According to news reports the CHP made 937 DUI arrests during their Labor Day Weekend Enforcement.

it sure seems concord police just go thru the motions to keep the grant monies flowing.

There was an easy 937 people driving DUI in every city in Calif that day,or any given day.
Not very effective.

Where are the red light runner and stop sign runner enforcement patrols?

I call in 1 or 2 a month that I see all over the road in Concord or on the freeway but the Concord police acts like they’ve been asleep and I just woke them up,or they have a “serious call;;” that all the officers are at,or I’m talking too fast and they are always training someone that isn’t working out.so this potential murderer isn’t even important.Do a search online to see how many countries sentence you to death for DUI,Indonesia is one I know for sure.

Note to Concord PD. An arrest is public information and codified. How about giving us the names of the DUI arrestees. Unless they are city council of course.

… so if we’re down to oneseys and twoseys there must be improvement? people getting the message? no?

I guess this person will have the same penalty as Paul Pelosi????

PD is down at least 30 officers since staffing took a hit. And while I would love to see cops making arrests, morale there is down and hard works are punished by the little captain. Why try when the pay is the same for doing nothing?

I’d like to think so. But I doubt it.

“Funding for this DUI Patrol was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.”

This means all of this is on Overtime.

While I detest intrusive, wasteful government, impaired drivers threaten all of us. So, I do support getting them off the road.

Once convicted, I like the idea of mandating alcohol measuring devices that prevent starting a car when drunk.

And, a second conviction should result in mandatory jail time and heavy fines.

Innocent lives can be saved if the consequences of getting caught hurt enough.

They would have way more success just driving around pulling people over with tail lights out, or no license plate.

Think about how inefficient, corrupt, and flat-out stupid this whole federal “grants” grift is, be it for this DUI thing, transportation funds, education, etc. Taxpayers in the various states pay their local, state, and federal taxes, but then see their local and state governments compete/beg to get some of that money back from Uncle Sugar in the form of grants. Nothing more than legal money-laundering.

@Pete V. – I’ve always said it’s merely a middle-class welfare system: the cops, lawyers, judges, jailers, counselors, supply vendors, all of it. A bunch of make work to present the illusion all is well in Gotham City.
