Cops Already Out Looking for Drunks

Every holiday season, Alameda County law enforcement officials roll out the drunk driving squad, beefing up patrols hunting for those who have imbibed and decided to toot on down the road. This year started as early as December 18, as the cops geared up to catch the plastered pedal-pushers. How many have they snagged so far? According to Trib, almost 500. And props to Newark, which is racking up more than its share. The Trib, um, attributes this to a particularly eager local drunk squad, but we know better. Shame on you Newark, for your armies of inebriated motorists! Think of the children!
