Madera County - Saturday night while I was driving west on Avenue 12 in Madera County I came across a drunk driver near the Madera Center. I called 911 to alert the California Highway Patrol. On the first call the phone disconnected on the transfer. On the second call I received a recorded message and was put on hold.
While on hold the drunk driver turned off of Avenue 12 and started heading in the direction of the Madera County Sheriffâ€™s Department so I called them directly only to hear the dispatcher say â€œWe do not handle traffic or drunk drivers. We send those to the CHP.â€
