Be Safe and Take a Sober Ride Home This Thanksgiving Holiday
Arroyo Grande, Calif. – Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Arroyo Grande Police Department encourages drivers to arrive at their destinations safely by not driving impaired.
During the Thanksgiving holiday Nov. 25-Nov.29, Arroyo Grande Police Department will have additional officers on patrol looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
Officers will be actively looking for other unsafe driving practices – speeding, not wearing a seat belt, driving distracted – to make sure everyone has a safe holiday.
“We want everyone to enjoy the holidays and be safe when they must travel,” said Chief of Police, Michael Martinez. “Taking simple safety measures like driving sober, following the speed limit and wearing a seat belt helps keep yourself and others safe.”
Arroyo Grande Police Department reminds drivers that a “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs and marijuana can also impair, especially in combination with alcohol and other drugs.
Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
