From Avoid the 21 — Law Enforecement in Alameda County
Officers from the Castro Valley, Dublin, Hayward and Oakland area commands of the CHP will be on high alert for impaired, reckless and irresponsible drivers over the Labor Day weekend.
Black-and-white cruisers will flood the freeways from Friday night and continuing through Monday.
Law enforcement officials from all over Alameda County urge the driving public to phone in any dangerous drivers by dialing 911 on their cell phones, said Lt. Ava Garavatti of the Livermore police, Avoid the 21 coordinator.
“We take those calls very seriously,” she said. “We’ll dispatch an officer out to pull the car over. We appreciate all the help we can get in getting them off the road.”
