San Francisco interim District Attorney Suzy Loftus announced Wednesday that she was pulling the plug on predecessor George Gascón’s program to divert first-time DUI cases. 

“Traffic safety is so important for all of us, particularly given that so many of us have lost a loved one due to someone driving under the influence,” Loftus said in a statement. “These deaths are preventable, and prevention starts with people knowing there is accountability when it comes to drinking and driving.”
