Be Safe and Sober this St. Patrick’s Day

Rialto, Calif. – If you are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, remember to do so responsibly by having a plan to get home safely.
This St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2022, the Rialto Police Department will have officers on patrol from 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
“If drinking is part of your plans, plan on designating a sober driver and find a safe way home,” Rialto Police Department Chief Mark P. Kling said. “Don’t make poor decisions and allow yourself to mix alcohol or drugs with driving.”
Not only does driving under the influence put yourself and others on the road at risk, but it also hurts financially; attorneys’ fees, fines, court costs, insurance rate hikes, and car repairs can reach $15,000 or more in California.
“It’s simple: don’t drink and drive,” Chief Mark P. Kling said. “Stay at home or find a sober driver to take you home.”
If you ever see a suspected drunk driver on the road, call 9-1-1.
Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
