“Sobriety Checkpoints are a proven deterrent along with the ‘High Visibility’ enforcement campaigns to change behavior such as drunk driving, driving unrestrained and driving distracted,” according Chris Murphy, Director of the California Office of Traffic Safety. “Drivers who know that there is Zero Tolerance when it comes to drunk driving take measures to use a Designated Sober Driver and call 9-1-1 to report a suspected drunk driver weaving down the road ahead of them.”
