Riverside County: Leading Dui Cop Proud Of Record - Press Enterprise

Chronic Drunk Driver Kills Child After 150 Arrests, Gets Five Years

As a Riverside County sheriffs deputy assigned to a motorcycle DUI patrol in Moreno Valley from 2007 to 2013, each of those years Robinson led all county law enforcement officers in the number of arrests of drivers believed to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Now, after being pinned by the Sheriffs Department with a meritorious service medal for making the streets safer and being promoted to corporal in December, Robinson is patrolling Perris on four wheels and answering radio calls. But hes still watching for lane drifters and stoplight runners who might be impaired. Youre saving lives of a lot of different people, including kids, said Robinson, 41. You see a lot of kids involved in crashes due to the parents being intoxicated, or someone was intoxicated and recklessly ran into the vehicle that had kids in the vehicle and unsuspecting parents. I know for a fact that I had to have stopped a lot of tragedies because of it. Robinson made 1,579 DUI arrests from 2007 to 2013. Mothers Against Drunk Driving presented him with red pins with the number 23152 and three stripes the number representing the state vehicle code section for DUI and each stripe representing 100 arrests in a year when he topped 300 arrests in 2011 and 2012. We are honored to have him as part of our team, Lory Gleason, director of MADD Riverside County, wrote in an email. Robinson is proud but not boastful. I feel pretty successful at doing my job, he said. Its important to me to feel that way. Robinson watches for drivers who appear absent-minded: those who drift between lanes, run red lights, dont use their mirrors and fail to signal. These folks who are impaired cant plan so well. Its like theyre first-time drivers again, he said. DRUGGED DRIVERS INCREASING Robinson grew up in Louisiana and calls everyone sir or maam. Its about respect, he said. He served eight years on active and reserve duty in the Marines as a radio operator and pistol and rifle instructor.

A photo of the sobriety check point at 51st and Memorial. I pay taxes at businesses. How am I not paying for a bike path? Not that I want them. I just want to use the roads that I pay taxes to use. And you are dead wrong if you think roads were built for motorized traffic only. They are built heavier to withstand heavier vehicles, but there is no law banning bicycles. Here's the law: Sec. 11-1505. Position of bicycles at_ease - 48th Street Info Meeting Held at Holiday Inn - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com Whiner, Maybe you should try cycling sometime. You can save lots of $ while running errands around town. You can get great exercise and have fun, all while following the law. Unless you already have too much money, get too much exercise, have too much fun. Then by all means, burn the fuel and enjoy. You are entitled to use the road just like the thrifty cyclists.

20 2014 at 7:10 AM Categories: DrunkSF Exhibit A The San Francisco Police Department wants to make sure your weekend booze bender doesn't turn into a fender-bender -- or worse. Take BART, Muni, or a taxi tonight or grab a sober driver, because police will be looking for drunk drivers at a sobriety checkpoint somewhere within city limits between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. Specifically, cops will be on the lookout for signs of drug and alcohol impairment and to make sure you even have a driver's license. The reason? Recent statistics reveal that nearly one-third of of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their system, and more tested positive for drugs than did for alcohol. Of the drugs, marijuana was the most prevalent, just slightly more than alcohol, according to the SFPD. DUI checkpoints can reduce the number of people killed If you are suffering from lymes disease, cancer, MS, Lupus or any other life threatening conditions, please visit http://h3oxygentherapy.com to find out more information on how to alleviate the condition. Forcing oxygen into the body's system makes an environment to where most diseases or conditions cannot thrive and survive. and injured in alcohol or drug-involved crashes by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely, according to researchers. Checkpoints also save $6 for every $1 spent, according to police, and nearly 90 percent of California drivers approve of DUI checkpoints. That's probably because a DUI can include jail time, fines, fees, boring classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000. Collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests are the deciding factor in checkpoint placement locations. "In 2013, San Francisco had one traffic fatality related to a DUI driver," said Officer Gordon Shyy, "There were 56 felony DUI arrests during the same time period." Also, in California, 802 people died in 2012 in alcohol-related collisions. Nationwide, nearly 10,000 others were killed by an impaired driver.

The Biebs was arrested Jan. 23 in Miami on suspicion of DUI, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license. While it was widely reported that he and rapper buddy Khalil Sharieff had been pinched for "drag racing," he never faced any such charge, even though police originally described the incident that way. 8 To make those charges go away, Bieber will plead guilty next week to reckless driving, pay a fine and go to anger-management classes, TMZ said Friday, citing law-enforcement sources. It'll reportedly be the same deal, minus the classes, for 19-year-old Khalil, who with Bieber was arrested on suspicion of DUI. Sticking points in the plea negotiations were the judge's request that Bieber produce, pay for and star in an anti-drug PSA and prosecutors' desire that he attend drug and alcohol education classes, according to the website. The pop star's lawyers successfully argued that the first was inappropriate and the second was unnecessary and would incorrectly suggest their client had a substance-abuse problem.

Sober Up: DUI Checkpoint Scheduled For Tonight | SF Weekly

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for drunk-dude-in-urinal.jpg According to KSDK.com, the deceaseds 10-year-old brother was also injured in the hit-and-run accident. Still, despite the damage and the long history of disorderly conduct, Ricky Weeden was able to reach a plea deal with prosecutors, pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter, leaving the scene of a crash, and driving with a revoked license. (The original charges included second-degree murder and assault.) In addition to only getting five years, Weeden received credit from St. Louis County Circuit Judge Joseph Walsh III for the 20 months hed already served while awaiting sentencing. From the KSDK report: The crash happened at about 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 5, 2012. Police say Weeden kept driving after he hit Traye-Shon and Jayshard Williams with his GMC Sierra pick-up while they tried to cross St. Charles Rock Road. Traye-Shon Williams died at the scene. Police later found Weedens vehicle, and he was charged three days after the crash. Weedens drivers license was revoked in 1993. Records show that he was also involved in a 1983 crash that left two women dead. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the victims mother , Felicia Williams, was outraged. Someone is laying in the cemetery dead and they will never get up and come home again. Thats enough evidence right there. The Post-Dispatch notes that the drunk drivers record includes at least 11 DWI arrests, including six that resulted in convictions. He had served fewer than two years in prison for his DUI arrests despite state laws that say chronic offenders with at least three DUI convictions could see up to 15 years in prison. From the Post-Dispatch: His record is an example of how DWI offenders routinely avoid felony charges in the St. Louis region through deals made in municipal courts, and where prosecutors and judges let persistent drunken drivers escape convictions. The Missouri Highway Patrol investigated the incident that left Traye-shon dead and JayShard injured as crossed St.
