Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

Fullerton PD encourages everyone attending holiday parties and gatherings where alcohol may be involved to use a designated sober driver, ride share service, or taxi service.

This holiday season, from Dec. 13th to New Year’s, Fullerton PD will have more officers on patrol looking for drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

In addition, FPD will hold a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint this Friday, December 13th starting at 7 PM at an undisclosed location.

Fullerton PD reminds the public that impaired driving is not just from alcohol. Prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, and marijuana can also impair, especially in combination with alcohol and other drugs.

So, if you are hosting a holiday party, offer non-alcoholic drinks for designated sober drivers and monitor how people are getting home. If someone has been drinking and tries to leave, offer to arrange a safe, sober ride home.

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