Impared Driver Enforcement Programs

Designated Driver Program logo
The California Highway Patrol maintains an aggressive and comprehensive impaired driving program to deter, detect, and arrest DUI violators. The Department is involved in numerous activities aimed at removing the impaired driver from the roadways, encouraging individuals to refrain from driving under the influence, and identifying and apprehending illicit drug traffickers.

Driving under the influence (DUI) countermeasures used by the CHP include routine patrol, task force operations, sobriety checkpoints, aggressive enforcement strategies, public awareness, and active support of DUI laws.

The CHP will continue to take a leadership role in developing new strategies and technologies to combat a problem that threatens the safety of everyone traveling on California's highways.
