FORTUNA- The Fortuna Police Department is cracking down on repeat DUI offenders. They will be targeting those that continue to drive, even though their license is suspended for multiple DUI’s.
How it works: After repeat offenses, the driver is entered onto the “DUI Hot List,” police then take that information and conduct special surveillance operations to keep an eye on those repeat offenders. They’re primary goal of this enforcement is to apprehend drivers that present a major safety hazard to the other motorist on the road. Police say many of these repeat offenders drive impaired, drive on suspended licenses, and do not maintain insurance of their vehicles.
