Photo submitted CHP hopes to avoid Halloween nightmare on the road The California Highway Patrol said it hopes to scare motorists away from the idea of drunk driving this Halloween. Last year the weekend prior to Halloween. CHP officers arrested 1,258 people throughout the state for driving under the influ- ence. "If you're caught driving under the influence, officers will be treatingyou to time in the local jail," said Lt. Eric Liband of the Susanville area office. In addition to possible jail time, DUI violators face loss of their driver's license, alco- hol-treatment classes and other expenses that can exceed $10,000. "One way to help keep your good time this Halloween from becoming a drunk driv- ing nightmare is to designate a sober driver before the drinking begins," said Liband. However, the problem of drunk driving is not just sea- sonal in California. DUI is the leading cause of fatal traffic collisions in California. In The CHP said it encourages motorists to call 911 to report suspected drunk drivers. Be ready to provide the vehicle's license plate number, make and model, and location. "Helping to ensure the safe- ty of trick-or-treaters will take a combined effort from both motorists and parents," said Liband. "By taking a few extra precautions, everyone can have a safe and fun Halloween." Motorists should watch for children darting out from between parked cars and walking on roadways. Also, when driving, be sure to enter and exit driveways carefully. Parents make sure your child can be seen, especially when it gets dark. Remind the kids to look both ways before crossing the street and to use the crosswalks at intersec- tions.
