Roseville Police Working For Safer Summer Streets

The summer driving season has arrived, and the Roseville Police Department wants it to be a safe one. That's why the department is putting extra officers on the street Saturday, May 30, to patrol for drunken and drug-impaired drivers.

"Summer means celebrations--graduations, weddings, camping and boating, or just getting together with friends," Police Chief Mike Blair said. "We don't want a summer marked by a drunk-driving tragedy. That's why the Roseville Police Department is committed to getting drunk drivers off the road."

The Roseville Police Department is keeping Roseville's streets safer with routine nightly DUI enforcement, DUI and driver’s license checkpoints, and special DUI patrols.

"It's easy to avoid a DUI arrest," Chief Blair said. "If you're drinking, don't drive. Designate a sober driver in advance, stay where you are, or call a taxi or sober friend for a ride home. Whatever you do, don't get behind the wheel and risk an arrest--or worse."

Funding for Roseville’s DUI enforcement efforts is provided by a $100,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
