“My husband windsurfs and I’m going to catch some sun, the beautiful beaches, do some snorkeling,” another woman explained the details of her trip to Hawaii. “Just relax and have a good time.

However, staying home is the best vacation plan for others. “Because I travel for a living and so when I have time off actually the last thing I want to do is get on a place,” reasoned one man. “A vacation for me is not going anywhere because work, to me, means I am getting on a plane and going to other countries.

Law enforcement agencies around the Bay Area will be targeting unsafe and impaired drivers, with increased sobriety checkpoints.
