California police to take part in national campaign

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were approximately 10,000 deaths around the country from drunk driving crashes each year from 2010 to 2014. In California, there were 882 such deaths during that time period. From Aug. 19 to Sept. 5, the Burlingame Police Department is part of a nationwide campaign to combat drunk driving. The campaign is known as Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, and it is part of an effort to educate and crack down on drunk driving.

Two California Highway Patrol officers were among four people who were injured by an accused drunk driver on Aug. 9.

Following the crash, the woman was taken into custody for suspicion of DUI causing injury.

The challenges of stopping white collar crime in California

While it may be possible to prove that corporations and those who run them engage in criminal activity, it may be hard to win a conviction. This is partially because a corporation is a separate entity from its owners and operators. It presents a structural challenge that makes it difficult to show that individuals were actually aware that they were committing a crime or should have known about any wrongdoing.

It also took into account other factors such as taxes on alcohol and whether a state had banned texting while driving.
