Riverside County Sheriff-Press Release

Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Joey Sinz

File # N/A


Temecula, Calif. – The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office – Southwest Station encourages the public to celebrate Cinco de Mayo responsibly by planning ahead and designating a sober driver. “Don’t put yourself and others at risk and drive impaired,” Deputy Hansen said. “If you’re planning to celebrate with a drink or two, leave your keys at home and designate a sober driver.”

Deputy Hansen wants to warn the community that alcohol is not the only substance that can cause impairment. Driving under the influence of any substance is illegal. Do your research and understand how cannabis consumption, prescription medications or over-the-counter-drugs may affect your driving ability.

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