County-wide grant received to battle DUI offenders

County-wide grant received to battle DUI offenders

 

Drunk and drugged driving remains the number one killer on our state roadways, with nearly 800 deaths and over 24,000 injuries. The "Avoid the 8" DUI Task Force will be attacking this problem head on through DUI enforcement efforts in Yolo County as a result of a recent $80,000 grant awarded by the California Office of Traffic Safety to the Davis Police Department. Davis Police Department will administer the grant for the entire county.

Chief Landy Black of the Davis police department says, "The "Avoid the 8" DUI Task Force is named to send the message that if you don’t drink or use drugs and drive, you will

avoid getting arrested by any of the 8 participating law enforcement agencies in the county."

This Thanksgiving YOLOBUS offers a worry-free, environmentally-friendly and inexpensive way for travelers to get to the Sacramento International Airport.

(Woodland, CA)  As Americans plan to make over 40 million trips in the five days surrounding Thanksgiving, YOLOBUS is preparing to bring thousands of Sacramento and Yolo County residents to and from the Sacramento International Airport.  Running 18 times per day, Yolobus Routes 42A and 42B are the only bus routes that provide regular service to and from Sacramento International Airport.  These routes can be boarded in downtown Sacramento, West Sacramento, Davis and Woodland.

Aside from convenience, perhaps the best part about this service is the money savings.  Fares are $2 for regular passengers and $1 for senior (62+), disabled and youth passengers.  UC Davis undergraduates, CSU Sacramento undergraduates, and Los Rios students ride for FREE with valid student ID.
