Enforcement patrols scheduled to be out in force during Street Machine Nationals

The City of Carbondale Police Department will be increasing staffing levels in order to conduct compliance saturation patrols during the weekend of Friday, June 28 through Sunday, June 30, 2013.  With the return of the Street Machine Nationals additional officers will be out in force to curtail impaired driving and violations of alcohol, traffic and other related laws and ordinances.

               Public Possession/Consumption of Alcohol, CRC 2-5-5,

                         with fines between $50-$750

Additionally, officers will be taking a zero tolerance stance with regards to other City ordinance violations, including:

               Public Indecency and Public Nudity, CRC 14-2-5,

                         with fines between $50-$750

               Public Urination or Defecation, CRC 14-2-6,

                         with fines between $50-$750

               Reckless Conduct, CRC 14-2-7, with fines

                         between $50-$750

The Carbondale Police Department wants everyone to be able to enjoy the upcoming weekend.  To do so, please obey all traffic and criminal laws to avoid a citation, arrest or an injury resulting from a traffic crash.
