Details:

City of Lake Elsinore, Calif. – If you are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, remember to do so responsibly by having a plan to get home safely.

This St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2021, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department will have deputies on patrol looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

If drinking is part of your plans, plan on designating a sober driver and find a safe way home. Don’t make poor choices and allow yourself to mix alcohol or drugs with driving.

On St. Patrick’s Day 2019 in California, seven people were killed, and 116 others were injured in crashes caused by driving under the influence.

Not only does driving under the influence put yourself and others on the road at risk, but it also hurts financially; attorneys’ fees, fines, court costs, insurance rate hikes and car repairs can reach $15,000 or more in California. It’s simple, don’t drink and drive. If you ever see a suspected drunk driver on the road, call 911.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
