City of Norco, Calif. – On January 21, 2022, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department wants to remind the public about the importance of being safe and sober when you are driving.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is dedicated to keeping the public safe and urges people to stay at home or use a designated sober driver if you plan to drink.

Deputies from the Norco Sheriff’s Station will be out January 21, 2022, throughout the day and evening hours looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department 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. Do your research and understand how certain drugs you are taking may affect your driving ability.

Always follow directions for use and read warning labels about “driving” or “operating heavy machinery,” which includes driving a vehicle. While medicinal and recreational marijuana are legal, driving under the influence is not.

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

Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can face an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties, and a suspended license.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Highway Patrol.
