Pinal County Regional DUI Task Force

St. Patrick’s Day – Sobriety Checkpoint

On Thursday, March 17th, 2011 the Pinal County Regional DUI Task Force will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint on Highway 84 West of Peart Road outside of Casa Grande from 9 p.m. till midnight.

The checkpoint is just one part of our efforts to curb impaired driving. Law enforcement will also be conducting saturation patrols at locations throughout Pinal County to target drivers impaired by alcohol and drugs.

The Pinal County Regional DUI Task Force consists of law enforcement officers from agencies throughout Pinal County. The participating officers and their agencies have joined forces and are committed to removing impaired drivers from the roadways and thereby ensuring safer roads for the motoring public.

Approximately 2.57 persons are killed everyday across our state in motor vehicle crashes. Additionally, one person is injured every 9.39 minutes. It is estimated that fatal and injury crashes in Pinal County alone have an economic impact of over $149,025,162 per year.

Sheriff Babeu stated, “Let our message be clear: We will not tolerate impaired or reckless driving. Driving while impaired or recklessly endangers all people on Pinal County roads and highways. If you drive impaired or reckless you will be arrested. No excuses, no exceptions.”

Funding for the Pinal County Regional DUI Task Force activities and equipment is provided through grant funding by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety under the leadership of Director Alberto Gutier. “Drive Hammered, Get Nailed.”
