Details:

City of Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, and Norco, Calif. – As friends and family plan vacations during the final days of summer, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is reminding everyone to stay safe by always choosing a sober way to go.

No matter how you choose to celebrate the end of summer and Labor Day weekend, make sure you do so responsibly. Take the necessary precautions to protect yourself and your family by buckling up, ditching the distractions, following the speed limit, and never driving impaired.

To help keep our community safe during the busy late summer and Labor Day weekend travel season, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department will have additional deputies on patrol August 18, 2021 through Labor Day September 6, 2021 looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. The increased efforts to address impaired driving are part of a national enforcement campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

In addition to roving patrols, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department will hold a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Checkpoint on August 20, 2021 and August 27, 2021 from 8p.m. to 2a.m. at an undisclosed location within the city of Eastvale and Jurupa Valley.

Driving impaired is risky and puts yourself and others around you in serious danger. If you are taking a road trip over the next few weeks, make good choices and drive like your closest friends and family are in the cars around you.

Driving while impaired is not just from alcohol. Prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications and marijuana may also impair. If you plan on drinking or taking medications with a driving warning label, let someone who is sober drive. If you see someone driving impaired, 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.
