On November 29, 2013, and throughout the upcoming holiday season, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting various DUI sobriety checkpoints and DUI saturation patrol. The Sheriff’s Department is dedicated to the mission of taking impaired drivers off the roadway. The Department is committed to working relentlessly in making our community safe. If you plan on going out and consuming alcohol, here are a few safety tips: • Prior to drinking, designate a non-drinking driver when with a group. • Don’t let your friends drive impaired. Take away their keys. • If you have been drinking, get a ride home from a sober driver or call a taxi. • If you are hosting a party, remind guests to plan ahead and designate a sober driver, or make plans to stay the night. Operational funding and equipment were made available through grants awarded by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.
