Santa Barbara Police work to keep the roads safe from drunk drivers

The Santa Barbara Police Department is working to keep the roads safe from drunk drivers. It's joining law enforcement from across the state as part of California's 18 Day Holiday DUI Crackdown Campaign.

Officers will hold a DUI checkpoint in Santa Barbara on Sunday, December 27th, from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Police say in 2008, 11,773 people died in highway crashes involving a driver or motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. In California, 1,029 were killed on state and local roads.

Law enforcement is reminding everyone to never get behind the wheel if you have been drinking. Always have a designated driver.
