The so-called Beware of the Seven coalition includes the police departments of Roseville, Auburn, Lincoln and Rocklin, the sheriff’s department, the CHP and the Folsom Lake State Park Police.

Roseville Police Lieutenant Stan Lumsden says this is one of the worst holidays for DUIs. "With the 4th of July being hot we know people are going to go out and they’re going to consume alcohol which is okay, we don’t have a problem with that. We just want them to not get behind the wheel of a car and given the fact that it’s a 3-day weekend we anticipate it’ll be really busy."

This weekend’s maximum DUI enforcement campaign includes sobriety checkpoints and extra patrols.
