Earlier this week, we warned you that very soon cops would be out in force, looking for wasted drivers on the road.
Well, that day has arrived.
Come Monday, you will see cops, cops, and more cops all around the Candlestick Park corridor watching out for anyone who is swerving or driving kinda funny, like the 23-year-old who led police on a drunken chase last night. The extra patrols will start at 7 p.m. and end at 3 a.m.
"The officers assigned to this patrol on motorcycle and police cruisers
are skilled in detection of drivers we suspect may be under the
influence of alcohol or drugs. Motorcycles in particular allow the
officer an advantage to get closer to the vehicle to see if a driver is
exhibiting signs of impairment," SFPD Sgt. William Murray said.
The Candlestick Park corridor was an obvious spot for extra patrols, considering the 49ers will be playing the Chicago Bears that night. And, we all know that too much alcohol, testosterone, and football can be a deadly combination.
