Don't Drink and Drive... At Least Not Tomorrow

San Francisco Police Officers promise that tomorrow will be a day of intensely targeting those drunks behind the wheel.

As a part of the "Avoid the 8" campaign, cops will be out on motorcycles cracking down on inebriated drivers. "Avoid the 8" is a grant agencies receive from the California Office of Traffic Safety to conduct DUI patrols.

SFPD Sgt. Neil Swendsen put it so bluntly: "Motorcycles are more mobile and we can get closer to the vehicle to see if a driver is exhibiting signs of impairment."

Just remember that a BART ticket is much cheaper than a DUI.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
