Chicago PD to conduct DUI Saturation Patrol tonight in Rogers Park

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Chicago police say they will be saturating the Rogers Park neighborhood Friday night to look for DUI drivers.

The “DUI saturation patrol” will take place between 7 p.m. Friday until 3 a.m. Saturday in the North Side neighborhood, Chicago police said.

The patrols will concentrate on a pre-designated area with officers continually monitoring for signs of impaired driving, police said. The patrols will also look for speeding and safety belt violations.

Police said they may deploy their “Breath Alcohol Testing Mobile Unit” which expedites the DUI charging process and allows for offenders to be released from the site with an individual recognizance bond, police said.

  1. This entire DUI saturation checkpoint crap is simply an excuse to raise revenue. If you notice the numbers at MOST they only get 3 DUI transactions per episode and a lot of time they get none.

    They do however get PLENTY of ‘unsafe vehicle’ violations (Whatever that means) and ‘Other’ traffic violations. If this department was SERIOUS about public safety, I mean REALLY serious about it, They would hand out hundred dollar bills to every sober, safe driver not exceeding the speed limit.

    Just another example of how government picks at a problem that isn’t really a problem instead of actually doing something about the REAL problems.
