Details:

Perris, Calif. – The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department—Perris Station, will hold a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) saturation Patrol Operation, on November 12, 2021, from 8:00 P.M. to 2:00 A.M., in the city of Perris.

The primary purpose of the DUI saturation is to promote public safety by deterring drivers from driving impaired.

During the saturation deputies, will look for signs that drivers are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

“The safety of our community is and always will be our mission,” Sergeant Hibbler said. “We are still out there looking for impaired drivers because driving under the influence is still dangerous.”

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department reminds the public that impaired driving is not just from alcohol. Some prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs may interfere with driving. Always follow directions for use and read warning labels about driving or” operating heavy machinery,” which includes driving a car. While medicinal and recreational marijuana are legal, driving under the influence of marijuana is illegal.

If you plan on drinking or taking medications that may impact your ability to drive safely, plan on staying at home.

Drivers charged with DUI face an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties, as well as a suspended license.

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