DUIs Alive And Well In Costa Mesa But Arrests Fall As DUI Unit Disbanded

When it came to having near certainty to pick up a DUI
Costa Mesa with its DUI team was arresting as fast as the bars would supply
Over 800 arrests to from the roads attempt to sweep
Those drivers who upped the odds to put themselves or other drivers in a hospital or in a morgue for a permanent sleep
The news in the Daily Pilot is that the DUI team will now disband
One can only hope the DUI scourge does not get completely out of hand
If we were serious about DUIs as we are about smog
Here is an idea that would reduce the police arrest logs
Like a catalytic converter that is an absolute must
All cars should be equipped with an interlock to lower the DUI busts
The lawyers and DMV schools would bemoan fees they would lose
But there be a lot less funerals and a lot less drivers in jail to their DUI rue.
