Halloween DUI Patrols

This Halloween, Sheriff's Deputies will be keeping trick-or-treaters of all ages safe by getting drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs off San Diego's roadways.

On Tuesday, October 31st, deputies will be conducting increased DUI patrols in communities within the jurisdiction of the Sheriff's Department.

These efforts are designed to keep impaired drivers off the streets and prevent crashes that can cause serious injury or death.

"Impaired driving puts everyone in danger," said Sheriff Bill Gore. "Do the responsible thing: don't drink and drive on Halloween or any day."

Here are some sober rider options for Halloween:
• Metropolitan Transit System (MTS):
• North County Transit District (NCTD):

Watch our public safety video on the dangers and high price of drinking and driving by following the Sheriff's Department on VIMEO:

Remember: Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving.

Funding for the Halloween DUI patrols is from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
