Hey Drunk Drivers Beware: Cops Out in Force This Weekend
|Consider yourself warned.|
Cops will set up a DUI checkpoint at Geary Boulevard and 9th Avenue Saturday night starting at 8:30 p.m.
Jan Ford, spokeswoman for the California Avoid the 8 campaign, says the disclosure is supposed to be a fair warning to intoxicated drivers that cops will be out there looking for them.
But then she admits that these warnings don't seem to work.
"I've been working with checkpoint for 30 years, and it doesn't make any difference," Ford says. "You're working with people who are intoxicated and they don't even remember where the checkpoint is."
"Alcohol gives people a sense of invulnerability like 'I can fool those officers'," Ford added.
