Sunne Wright McPeak says - with children “trick or treating” and adults attending parties - being unsafe could cause a tragedy.
"This Halloween, which is the second highest day of purchasing alcohol, we want people to not drive and drink, we want people to have a safe Halloween and to stay alive. Clearly, we will be out there enforcing the law."
McPeak says California Highway Patrol officers will be looking for speeders and impaired drivers during an enhanced enforcement period that starts at 6 PM Friday and ends at Midnight on Monday.
Alcoholic Beverage Control investigators will also be out this weekend conducting decoy operations and complaince checks to keep alcohol away from minors.
