Are "Petty Theft" or "Shoplifting" charges affected by Prop 47?

Petty theft and shoplifting charges are one of the main areas addressed by Prop 47, now known as California Penal Code 1170.18.  However, it will not change much for the vast majority of people arrested for a first offense petty theft.  Prop 47 prevents the filing of felonies for individuals with theft priors.  Before this law change, individuals with certain theft related priors or 3 or more petty thefts, could have been and usually were charged with a felony "petty with a prior" which was punishable by up to 3 years in prison.

Increased DUI enforcement over the holidays

All Holidays have incresed DUI enforcement, especially the Christmas through New Years time period.  Traditionally this period of time is filled with holiday parites, evenrts and gatherings where alcohol is a main componnent.  Bars and restaurants are more crowded and frequented and there are more impaired drivers on the road than any other time.  Law enforcement is always on high alert during these holidays with extra patrols, checkpoints, and more officers on duty than any other time.
