The Pima County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting a DUI Sobriety Checkpoint on Saturday March 14, 2015. DUI saturation patrols will also be active throughout the weekend in preparation of St. Patrick’s Day festivities. The Sheriff’s Department is dedicated to its mission to take impaired drivers off the roadway. They will continue their efforts to eliminate impaired driving in Pima County. 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.
