LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS IN VENTURA COUNTY ON THE LOOKOUT FOR D.U.I. SUSPECTS OVER CINCO DE MAYO 

(Oxnard, CA) Sheriff’s deputies, CHP officers and police officers in Ventura County will be on the lookout for drivers high on alcohol or drugs over the Cinco de Mayo weekend. 
In Oxnard, officers will conduct DUI saturation patrols beginning on Friday, May 4, 2012. On Saturday, officers from Oxnard PD, Ventura PD, the California Highway Patrol, and the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department will team up to conduct a joint-agency, AVOID the 14, DUI saturation patrol in the city of Oxnard.
“The California Highway Patrol will aggressively seeking out DUI suspects and will field extra black-and-white units,” said Lt. Casey Cronin of the CHP Ventura Area Command. “We’ve seen a 54 percent increase in DUI injury collisions from 13 in the first four months of last year and 20 for the same time period this year,” he said. “This cannot be allowed to continue.” 
Of course drivers need to be sober, and they should also realize that streets and freeways are bad places to multi-task, according to Cronin. He advocates concentrating solely on driving, and not being distracted by texting, talking on the phone, eating or fiddling with the stations on the car radio. 
“Avoid the 14 will conduct other operations over the Memorial Day and Independence Day holiday weekends,” said traffic Sgt. Randy Latimer of the Oxnard Police Dept., campaign coordinator. 
Funding for Avoid the 14 comes from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
