Glendora Police officers announced the deployment of DUI enforcement patrols during the Fourth of July Weekend.

Extra DUI saturation patrols will take place in addition to routine staffing over the three-day weekend, police said in a written statement.

“There are too many options to avoid getting behind the wheel impaired these days. If you forget that,
we will be actively looking for you with a costly reminder,” said Glendora Police Chief Tim Staab. “The
‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign means zero tolerance for drunk driving – no excuses.”

In 2014, 397 people were killed in crashes over the Fourth of July Weekend and of those fatalities, 41 percent were killed in crashes involving a driver or motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher, said Wendy Brewer, senior community service officer with Glendora Police.

Grant funding for the DUI enforcement operations is provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
