COYOTE ALERT We want you to be aware that coyotes have been recently seen in the Southern Hills area. One resident on Southridge Way (next to San Bruno Mountain Park) sent us these images she took from her window one afternoon last week. Coyotes are actually fairly common in urban areas and suburbs. They look similar to a small German shepherd dog or a large fox. They usually prefer not to interact with people, but sometimes conflicts do occur. Simply seeing a coyote does not mean there is a problem, but they are wild animals and can be dangerous. The most common complaints regarding coyotes are that people worry for the safety of their children, pets and the elderly. We offer the following suggestions: • Do NOT approach them and encourage them to approach you. • Do not run away from them as it may trigger a hunt or play instinct, but rather raise your arms above your head, act aggressively and yell. • If the coyote does not run away or acts aggressively towards you, retain eye contact and stay facing the coyote, wave a stick or throw an object, pick up your children or small pets and move to an area of increased activity. • Keep your pets indoors from dusk to dawn. • Do not leave pet food outside overnight. • Be careful when walking your dog during the dusk/dawn hours.

The roadway is now clear on Skyline Boulevard!

Reminder: This is happening tonight! Designate a sober driver and be careful! DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint Planned for December 22, 2017 The Daly City Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Driver’s license checkpoint on Friday December 22nd, 2017 at King Drive and Stafford Street, in Daly City between the hours of 6 p.m. and 4 a.m. (12/23/17) In recent years, California has seen a disturbing increase in drug-impaired driving crashes. The Daly City Police Department supports the new effort from the Office of Traffic Safety that aims to educate all drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI. The deterrent effect of High Visibility Enforcement using both DUI checkpoints and DUI Saturation Patrols has proven to lower the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug impaired crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized proactive DUI operations are conducted routinely. DUI Checkpoints like this one are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public. In California, alcohol involved collisions led to 1,155 deaths and nearly 24,000 serious injuries in 2014 because someone failed to designate a sober driver. Over the course of the past three years Daly City Police Department officers have investigated 311 DUI collisions from which 78 involved injuries. Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, with officers checking drivers for proper licensing, delaying motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes. Studies of California drivers have shown that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol. Everyone should be mindful that if you’re taking medication – whether prescription or over-the-counter – drinking even small amounts of alcohol can greatly intensify the impairment affects. Drivers are encouraged to download the Designated Driver VIP, or “DDVIP,” free mobile app for Android or iPhone. The DDVIP app helps find nearby bars and restaurants that feature free incentives for the designated sober driver, from free non-alcoholic drinks to free appetizers and more. The feature-packed app even has social media tie-ins and even a tab for the non-designated driver to call Uber, Lyft or Curb. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspensions and other expenses that can exceed $10,000—not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out. Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the Daly City Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to “Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1”.

Traffic alert. Highway 35 southbound from Westridge Avenue to Westmoor Avenue has been diverted due to a collision. At this time, it is unknown when southbound traffic will clear. Thank you for your patience.

One of our followers sent us this photo of Officer Dave Farrar showing her daughter Gia his patrol car on Thursday. Her mother, Miya, thanked Officer Farrar for his positive encounter. We love receiving messages like this!!
