The Sheriff’s Department says it will add extra DUI patrols across San Diego County beginning at 7 p.m. Friday and ending at 3 a.m. Tuesday to combat holiday drunken drivers.

DUI checkpoints will be in the following cities:

During the Memorial Day DUI enforcement period in 2013, the Sheriff’s Department arrested 39
people on suspicion of drunken driving.

“Be responsible when you’re on the road this Memorial Day,” Sheriff Bill Gore said. “If you drink, make sure you have a designated driver.”

Also this month, the Sheriff’s Department says it is cracking down on people who don’t wear seat belts.

The Click It or Ticket campaign runs through June 1. Anyone caught not wearing their seat belt
may be cited.

Sheriff’s deputies issued 1,012 citations for seat-belt violations in 2013, the office said Friday.
