In a press release (following a press conference) the California Highway Patrol announced that up to 80% of the entire force will be working the holiday weekend from December 28, 2007 through midnight January 1, 2008. The funding for this incredible display of law enforcement is a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, additional funds will permit the CHP to conduct at least 100 checkpoints and 65 DUI task force operations throughout 2008. Of course, Mother’s Against Drunk Driver’s was present to further its prohibition campaign.
