CCPD Conducting DUI Enforcement During the Holidays - Be Safe and Drive Sober This Holiday Season

Be Safe and Drive Sober This Holiday Season
Culver City, Calif. – Millions of us will be traveling to visit friends and family over the holidays. The Culver City Police Department encourages everyone to have a holiday game plan that includes a designated sober driver.
During the pre-Christmas and New Year’s holiday season Nov. 30-Dec. 14, the Culver City Police Department will have additional officers on patrol looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
Tragically, there is an uptick in impaired drivers during the holidays. During the 2019 Christmas (Dec. 24-Dec. 26) and New Year’s Day (Dec. 28, 2018-Jan. 2, 2019) holiday periods, there were more drunk-driving related deaths (210) throughout the country than during any other holiday period in 2019.
“We want everyone to enjoy the holidays and be safe,” said Police Chief Manuel Cid. “The more people who plan ahead and find a safe and sober ride home from holiday parties and gatherings, the safer the holidays will be for everyone.”
The Culver City 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.
