New DUI Mobile Unit to Make Mulholland Corridor Safer
To make the roads of Calabasas safer, the LA County Sherriff’s Department recently released a DUI Mobile Enforcement Unit that will help with catching drunk drivers and aid in emergency preparedness. Because the Mulholland Highway corridor and the Calabasas canyon roads are narrow and often traveled at high speeds, this unit will make a positive impact on Calabasas safety.
The DUI unit will help with screening, sobriety tests and the collection and retention of evidence, says Lt. Todd Weber of the Lost Hills/Malibu Sheriff’s Station. The unit also has computers capable of contacting law enforcement databases or can also be used as a mobile command unit during natural disasters.
According to Calabasas Patch, the DUI Mobile Enforcement Unit is meant to aid the Operation Safe Canyons program, a program that began six years ago after residents reported street racing on Stunt Road in the Santa Monica Mountains. The goal of the program is to make the canyon roads in the surrounding area safer through a combination of education, engineering, and enforcement.
