California: Moreno Valley Police round up 88 in DUI warrant sweep; they will show up for court now!

(RIVERSIDE COUNTY June 13, 2011) —The Moreno Valley Police Department, reports that in its continued dedication to public safety, they conducted a DUI warrant sweep over the last several days.
This focused enforcement is part of an ongoing public safety awareness effort conducted by the police department. Many people who get caught drinking and driving are under the impression that if they simply avoid the court system, their case might fade away; not true in Moreno Valley.
The Moreno Valley Police Department has a “Zero Tolerance” approach toward DUI drivers. During the warrant sweep, warrant service was attempted at 203 locations. Out of that number, 88 warrants for DUI were served. In addition, one felony warrant for transportation for sales of dangerous drugs were served and two vehicles were towed for the driver either being unlicensed or having a suspended license.
The city of Moreno Valley is dedicated to making the roadways safe for all motorists. The Moreno Valley Police Department will continue this increased enforcement throughout the year. This warrant sweep was funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety.
