Cinco de Mayo is near: Please Celebrate Responsibly

Moreno Valley, Calif. — For many people across the country, Cinco de Mayo (May 5) is a time for fun and celebrations that may involve drinking.

The holiday, which happens to fall on a Sunday this year, is a reminder to the public to celebrate responsibly and not drive impaired.

This May 5, Moreno Valley Police Department will have officers on patrol from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. ready to stop and arrest drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

“We understand the importance of this day to many people, but it does not give you an excuse to drink and drive,” Moreno Valley Police Department’s Sergeant Brian De Marco said. “There are many options to get home safely that don’t involve you driving.”

Moreno Valley Police Department encourages everyone to plan ahead and use a designated sober driver, ride-share or public transportation. Moreno Valley Police Department also wants to remind everyone that a “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications and marijuana can all be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.
