The Santa Clara County Avoid the 13 DUI Task Force is under way, with officers and deputies aggressively looking for impaired drivers during the holiday season.
With this in mind, law enforcement from Santa Clara County agencies recently announced the launch of a special “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown to stop impaired drivers and save lives on the roadways.
Local enforcement will include the following.
