Chino PD, in partnership with NHTSA, is stepping up its efforts to look for impaired drivers over the holidays. “This holiday season, drivers will notice increased enforcement watching closely for anyone who is driving impaired,” states Chief Comstock. “It is vital that we keep our roads and our community members safe, not just during the holidays, but every day. With extra travelers on the roads, and people attending holiday parties, we will likely see an increase in impaired driving. We’ll be arresting anyone we catch breaking this life-saving law.” Remember, “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana use can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI. #THINKANDDRIVE
