Memorial Day Weekend DUI enforcement

Local law enforcement agencies are launching Memorial Day Weekend DUI campaigns to catch motorists driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The Avoid the 10: San Joaquin County DUI Campaign will conduct DUI saturation patrols from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday in Stockton; from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday in Lodi; from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday in Manteca; and from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday in Lodi. There will also be a DUI/driver’s license checkpoint from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday in Manteca.

Authorities offer the following tips for revelers:

* Plan ahead. Arrange rides home for your friends, family, coworkers and yourself before drinking.

* Those hosting celebrations and servers should limit drinks to your guests or patrons. Don’t serve more than one or two over several hours.

*Identify and provide free non-alcoholic drinks to designated sober drivers. For tasty drink recipes, visit the DDrink Mixology Center at www.facebook.com/californiaOTS.

* Cut back on the amount of drinks you plan to bring to the party and provide plenty of food.

* Report drunk drivers by calling 911.
