Despite years of efforts to raise public awareness about the risks and costs of driving under the influence of alcohol and other substances, drivers continue to ignore the warnings and make bad judgments.

Clearly, something must be done.

State government has started.

[efoods]Last week state traffic safety officials announced plans to tighten their grip on drunk drivers and declared 2010 “The Year of the Checkpoint.”

Plans are to send a record $8 million in grant funding to 148 law enforcement agencies for DUI checkpoints – up from $5 million in 2009.

The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) will fund more than 2,500 sobriety checkpoints in 2010, a 47 percent increase over the 1,700 conducted this year.
