San Diego Sheriff's Department unilaterally changes the drunk driving law in Del Mar, Encinitas, Solana Beach and San Diego from .08% for a DUI to "Zero Tolerance" without legal authority, attorney say

Who gave the police the right to change the California drunk driving law from .08% to "Zero Tolerance," San Diego DUI lawyers ask?

From 08/22/2014 to 08/23/2014 5:00 pm to 2:00 am in Del Mar, Encinitas, San Diego, and Solana Beach, San Diego area DUI Deputies from the San Diego Sheriff's Department with Police Officers from San Diego Police Department, SDSU Police Department, and UC San Diego Police Department, conducted San Diego DUI Enforcement Patrols to crackdown on drunk driving in an effort to lower deaths and injuries in and around the Del Mar Race Track and after the evening entertainment that was held at the race track.

The San Diego AVOID Agencies had seven teams of deputies and officers who conduct 70 San Diego traffic stops, where 17 people were evaluated for San Diego DUI - driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and three people were arrested for San Diego drunk driving/driving under the influence of alcohol. Four San Diego drivers were cited for driving without a driver's license. There were eight additional San Diego traffic citations issued and two vehicles were impounded.

The San Diego “Zero Tolerance” DUI Saturation Patrols were unlawfully targeting those who still don’t heed the message to designate a sober driver before their celebrations begins.  Funding for this San Diego DUI program is through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Police, San Diego Sheriff and the San Diego CHP encourage all motorists to watch and report impaired drivers each and every trip around town or during summer vacations: Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1 anytime motorists encounter that dangerous driver.

Want to ensure a 3rd California DUI arrest and then some? Get arrested for DUI twice before and steal a San Diego Police Department car!

If you have 2 California DUI convictions on your record, what's the latest thing you should be doing?  Driving drunk again is close but is not the answer.

Driving DUI AND Stealing a San Diego Police Department car is the correct answer, attorneys related.

Yesterday a lady who managed to get her 3rd DUI arrest in San Diego despite being only 1 year over the drinking age of 21, did just that, San Diego County DUI Law Center reports.

Around midnight, Felicitas Flores took a San Diego PD car and raced off at high speeds up to 90 mph until the cops laid down a spike strip Northbound 5 in Carlsbad.  That slowed her down but she did not stop as she continued with deflated tires until a rest area north of Oceanside.  Surrounded by DUI cops, she tried to drive away and hit another cop car with the cop car she too.

This all got her a $280,000 bail with charges for DUI, evading arrest, grand theft auto, assault with a deadly weapon and vandalism.  Hiring a top San Diego DUI Lawyer will likely be her priority if she can afford it.
