Retenes este fin de semana / This weekend's checkpoints (16-18/ago/2012)

Thursday Aug 16th, 2012 4:03 PM
La Oficina estatal de Seguridad de Tránsito acaba de anunciar las agencias becadas para este año. ¿Recibió una beca la localidad donde usted vive? Véase la página web para informarse: http://www.ots.ca.gov/Media_and_Research/Press_Room/2012/doc/2013_Grant_list_by_region.pdf

Nosotrxs en Checkpoint response nos hemos percatado de que no todas las agencias de orden público están cumpliendo con la ley AB353 como se debe. (La ley permite que a un conductor detenido en un retén cuyo único delito es manejar sin licencia llame a alguien con licencia para recoger el auto.) Si cae en un retén, tiene que reclamar su derecho de llamar a alguien más porque no le van a informar. Y si no le permiten ejercer ese derecho, favor de informarnos a nosotros o a tu organización local. Manda un correo electrónico a noretenes@gmail.com.

The California Office of Traffic Safety just announced the agencies that will be receiving grants this year. Did your local agency or university receive a grant? Check the list on the website to find out: http://www.ots.ca.gov/Media_and_Research/Press_Room/2012/doc/2013_Grant_list_by_region.pdf

We at Checkpoint response have found out that not all the law enforcement agencies are following the AB 353 law like they should. (That is the law that permits drivers who get caught going through checkpoints without licenses to call a licensed driver to get the car.) If you go through a checkpoint, you must speak up in order to exercise your right, because the police are not informing people of their options. And if they do not allow you to call a licensed driver, please inform us or your local organization. Send an email to noretenes@gmail.com.
