Details: No Arrests During DUI Saturation Patrol 

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, serving the City of Perris, made several vehicle enforcement stops with no DUI arrests during a saturation patrol conducted on December 27th, 2019.

“The goal of the saturation patrol is to reduce the number of impaired drivers on our roads. We’re always happy to end a patrol with no DUI arrests because it means many people are making the responsible choice to find a safe ride home,” said Deputy Marker.

No DUI arrests were made but 13 citations were issued for vehicle code violations, and three vehicles were towed. 

Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be approximately $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Perris Station  wants to remind drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, can impair and result in a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.

The Perris Station Deputies will be conducting another DUI saturation Patrol in the near future. 

Funding for this DUI Saturation Patrol was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
