Alhambra Police Department Holiday DUI Enforcement

Location

Alhambra , CA United States

Alhambra, CA – The Christmas and New Year’s holidays are ways to spend time with family and friends
ringing in another year, but also a time when people can make poor choices that put themselves and others at
risk on the road.

To help spread the message about the dangers of drunk and impaired driving, the Alhambra Police Department
is partnering with the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) to get impaired drivers off the roads.

During the high-visibility enforcement campaign Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, which runs from December
14, 2018 through January 1, 2019, the Alhambra Police Department will have more officers on the road
conducting saturation patrols looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or
drugs.

In addition, The Alhambra Police Department will hold a DUI Checkpoint on Friday, December 21, 2018. The
DUI Checkpoint will be from 7:00 PM to 3:00 AM at the intersection of Garfield Avenue and Beacon Street.
“Whether you are home with family or at the restaurant or bar, it is important that you find a sober ride home
after drinking,” said Sergeant Soriano from the Alhambra Police Department. “As an adult, it is up to you to
make adult decisions and drive sober or use a ride share service. There are no excuses for driving impaired.”
The Alhambra Police Department also reminds drivers that DUI doesn’t just mean alcohol. Marijuana,
prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications can also be impairing, especially in combination with
alcohol or other drugs.
