Cinco de Mayo Weekend; RivCo Sheriff’s Dept Urging You To Designate A Sober Driver

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office encourages the public to celebrate Cinco de Mayo responsibly by planning ahead and designating a sober driver.

“Don’t put yourself and others on the road at risk by driving impaired,” Deputy Timothy Garfin said. “If you’re planning to celebrate with a drink or two, leave your keys at home and designate a sober driver.”

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office wants to warn the community that alcohol is not the only substance that can cause impairment. Marijuana, prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs may also impair. Do your research and understand how certain drugs may affect your driving ability.
