    I have coordinated safety issues with the LPD before for High School band events amongst many.

    Wine events have an added challenge.

    I will not defend the drunk driver. I have had relatives die because of it. A drunk once landed in my front yard when my walnut tree wouldn't move out of his way. He stopped rather abruptly. The man was lucky to live.

    What I will defend is the fact that the wine industry is not going away.

    Responsibilities extend far and near.

    What the LPD appreciates - in my experience - is a planned effort to curb the problem before it happens. I have helped plan these type of events and taking hold and being responsible to the best of your ability no matter who you are is part of the story. Serving alcohol to a wine judge, wine taster, or wine consumer or drinking it yourself is no different. Alcohol in any form does what it does. Wine is considered to be a food however and we could talk forever on that subject.

    ABC expects all that of you and anyone who has been a bartender of sorts knows that taking the keys or arranging a ride means alot. I have checked IDs for a local event because I was one that would do it. A $1000 fine as a pourer convinces monetarily. Compassion for one another convinces further. I have driven people home as well when circumstances require.
    The Lodi Police Department is only concerned about our safety. Helping them is our responsibility.
    For particular events I have helped plan it takes 100 people or so to put on. We are all conscious of what comes with it. The LPD do not have an easy job in the land of after thought. Prevention and preplanning are the words even though nothing is ever absolute. Who cares? - We do . So be responsible when the party starts AND ends.

    People who operate a motor vehicle on public roads impaired not only endanger their lives but lives of innocent victims as well. I have absolutely NO sympathy for these law breakers and appreciate LPD's efforts to reduce their numbers. Book'em.....

    I sure hope those tow truck owners are still able to make their payments on all those new tow trucks they bought?

    Where was the saturation or dui/license checkpoint Friday night for the monthly wine stroll? I notice these checkpoints are nearly always scheduled away from these Friday night wine strolls and the big wine drinking events in this area, or when the rare occasion rises, away from the action area and usually some out of the way location to avoid embarassing a dignitary with a dui arrest.
