Pasadena Police Plan Checkpoint for DUI, Unlicensed Drivers on Friday

first_img Subscribe Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Pasadena Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Driver License Checkpoint on Friday, July 15, 2016 at an undisclosed location within the Pasadena city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of people killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20% when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are initiated routinely.DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.In California, this deadly crime led to 867 deaths and over 23,000 serious injuries in 2013 because someone failed to designate a sober driver. Nationally, the latest data shows over 10,000 were killed by an impaired driver. Over the course of the past three years officers have investigated 70 DUI collisions which have claimed 4 lives and resulted in another 109 injuries.Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment with officers checking drivers for proper licensing delaying motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes.Recent statistics reveal that 30 % of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 %) than did for alcohol (7.3 %). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at7.4 %, slightly more than alcohol. Everyone should be mindful that if you’re taking medication, whether prescription or over-the-counter, drinking even small amounts of alcohol can greatly intensify the impairment.Law Enforcement emphasizes the preventable nature of drunk driving reminding everyone that all it takes is some planning. Designate a sober driver, use a taxi or one of the many rideshare options. But whatever you do, don’t drink and drive.The California Office of Traffic Safety DDVIP (Designated Driver VIP) mobile app is now available for free download on iOS and Android devices. Launched last year, the new DDVIP app offers enhanced features, allowing users to “Map a Spot” with their current location to find DDVIP partnering establishments in their area or a “List of Spots” to search all participating bars and restaurants throughout California. Users will be offered free incentives at each bar to celebrate their life saving role. They can stay up-to-date with the latest from DDVIP and see what other users are saying via its social tab. Also through the app, for those who want to consume alcohol but also make it a point to plan ahead, users can easily order a sober ride from a rideshare resource such as Uber, Lyft or Curb.Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, mandated DUI classes and other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the negative impact on friends and family.Funding for this checkpoint is provided to Pasadena Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. We all remind you to Report Drunk Drivers by Calling 9-1-1.

Community bankers want congressional probe of credit union taxi debacle

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr A lack of oversight by the NCUA allowed New York credit unions to lure unsuspecting taxi drivers into taking out loans they could not afford, the trade group representing community bankers charged Thursday, in asking for a congressional probe of the issue.“This was a replay of the subprime lending crisis in residential mortgages prior to 2008, and a remarkable failure of lenders and regulators to learn the lessons of that recent crisis,” Independent Community Bankers of America President/CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey said, in letters to the congressional committees with oversight of the NCUA.She said that the problem indicates that the NCUA has been “captured” by the credit unions it supervises.Rainey’s charges are the latest salvos in the long battle between credit unions and banks, which allege that credit unions have an unfair competitive edge since they are tax exempt institutions. continue reading »last_img read more
