Avoid a DUI on Super Bowl Sunday 2013

The Super Bowl is rapidly approaching and will be played on Sunday, February 3, 2013.  This is one of the biggest party days of the year for Americans and is also one of the days where the most amount of alcohol is consumed by American adults.

Many will be going over to friend's and family homes to watch the game together, enjoying BBQ's and cold alcoholic beverages.  Be forewarned that in San Diego county, law enforcement intends to set up roving DUI patrols on the lookout for impaired drivers.

Even if you have a couple of drinks and feel ok to drive, make sure that you have a designated driver that has not been drinking to get you home safely.  If you choose to drive and have consumed any amount of alcohol, you will be asked to get out of the car and be evaluated for DUI if you are stopped by the police.  It's not worth it.  Get a DD and enjoy the Super Bowl this year.

Are Redlight cameras in San Diego coming to an end?

Per story:  The vendor that runs San Diego's photo red-light program plans to switch off the cameras at 15 intersections on Friday, pending a decision from Mayor Bob Filner on whether to renew the contract.
It won't be a long wait.
Filner has announced a news conference for 10:30 a.m. Friday at North Harbor Boulevard and West Grape Street, which The Watchdog has identified as the most prolific intersection for photographing scofflaw license plates and mailing $490 tickets by mail.
The camera contract ends today, and The Watchdog has been asking about the status of the long-running program all week. The answer initially was that the cameras would be switched off on a temporary basis, pending the decision from Filner, which would come at an unspecified later time. Then, late Wednesday, the news conference was announced.
The spokesman for the city department that handles the program, Bill Harris, said Filner has been evaluating options given to him by city staff for the future of the program.
"The mayor has been presented with the options for the program and is considering what works for the city," Harris said Wednesday morning.
