Celebrate Cinco de Mayo Responsibly

Union City, Calif. –The Union City Police Department encourages the public to celebrate Cinco de Mayo responsibly by planning ahead and designating a sober driver.

During the week of May 5, the Union City Police Department will have additional officers on patrol looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

“Don’t put yourself and others on the road at risk by driving impaired,” Sgt. Steve Fong said. “If you’re planning to celebrate with a drink or two, leave your keys at home and designate a sober driver.”

The Union City Police Department wants to warn the community that alcohol is not the only substance that can cause impairment. Marijuana, prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs may also impair. Do your research and understand how certain drugs may affect your driving ability.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
