Set up toll booths on Storke, Los Carneros and the UCSB end of El Colegio. Collect $50 from each entrant to defray the cost of law enforcment, paramedics, etc. Hand each one a receipt with a list of the prior year's death and injury count. Not that anyone will read it before it ends up as litter.
Let the seekers of liberty and the pursuit of happiness pay for their own party and don't shift the cost of babysitting our country's future leaders (or whatever) to local taxpayers.

They could probably focus the measure a bit better but the people who create the mess need to clean it up. I can think of much better uses for my tax dollars than paying SBPD to manage college-age drunks on State St.
What does SBPD pay in overtime for this?

I worked, although in a different department, with Mike Murdy. Back when public service meant something, it was one of the intangible rewards of the job to be able to work with colleagues like Mike. He was a fine person and Santa Barbara lost a piece of its soul when he died.
Requiescat in Pace.

Has anyone here tried to report a possible DUI? I've done it a few times. You call 911, get transferred to the CHP, tell them where you saw the drunk and by the time you are spelling your name for the dispatcher, they are miles behind you or else, after you hang up, you see them on an offramp.
It's a good idea but, on a freeway, with eveyone moving at least a mile per minute, the odds of having a cop close enough to the scene to actually do something is pretty small.

The Supes don't have a clue and neither does ADMHS administration. If they did, the CAO would not think that a consultant is the answer. They just closed an RFP bid process to identify someone to tell the county how to find their way out of this mess. Most telling is the ambiguity in the RFP. I don't think they really know what the problem is. I am also pretty confident they won't want to spend the money it takes to do get solid data.
