Don’t Let Drunk, or “High,” Drive: Celebrate the Holiday Season Responsibly.
National “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” Enforcement Campaign Begins Dec. 15
Perris, Calif. – This holiday season, The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Perris Station wants to remind the public to celebrate this holiday season responsibly by not driving under the influence.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Perris Station is committed to keeping our community safe and encourages everyone to stay in for the night or use a designated sober driver if you have alcohol, marijuana, prescription, or over-the-counter drugs that may impair your ability to operate a motor vehicle.
From Dec. 15 through New Year’s Day, The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Perris Station will have deputies on patrol looking for drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. This enforcement effort is part of a national campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, with the goal of stopping suspected impaired drivers who put others on the road at risk.
“When it comes to consuming drugs and/or alcohol and driving, there is a right and wrong choice,” Deputy Roberto Torres said. “Make the right choice by not driving impaired so everyone is able to enjoy the holidays.”
Impaired driving is not just from alcohol. Do your research and understand how certain drugs may affect your driving ability.
