On December 27, 2014, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department and the Pasqua Yaqui Police Department will conduct a joint DUI Sobriety Checkpoint. Their mission is to take impaired drivers off the roadway. Both departments are 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.
