How Not to Celebrate Cinco

 Thirteen law enforcement agencies in Santa Clara County are  deploying extra units to patrol for drunken drivers on tonight in conjunction  with Cinco de Mayo parties and bar discounts.
     
The Avoid the 13 DUI task force will have extra patrols in  Milpitas, Cupertino, Saratoga, Santa Clara, Palo Alto and Los Altos Hills.

Units will look for drivers weaving out of lanes, making wide  turns, failing to go at green lights, driving below the speed limit, and  driving aggressively and recklessly, and other signs of intoxicated driving.

"Communities everywhere will see special events and night spots  celebrating Cinco de Mayo this year," Milpitas police Chief Dennis Graham  said. "Make your celebration memorable by designating non-drinking drivers."

The extra patrols are funded by a grant from the California Office  of Traffic Safety.
