This Halloween, police, sheriff and CHP Officers will crack down on drunk and drugged drivers throughout the region with an aggressive Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement effort. The Avoid the 25 DUI Task Force has given a fair warning to all partygoers: keep the party off the road.
“The scariest part of Halloween is not the spooky costumes and scary pranks, it’s the impaired drivers. All too often, partygoers don’t plan ahead and choose to drive impaired, but a costume can’t disguise drunk driving,” said Redlands Police Chief Mark Garcia.
The Avoid the 25 – San Bernardino County DUI Task Force will deploy additional patrols this Thursday, Oct. 31, in addition to routine patrols already scheduled to stop and arrest alcohol or drug impaired drivers. In addition, Redlands Police will conduct a targeted “saturation patrol,” Tuesday, Oct. 29.
