Sober or Hand ‘Em Over: Celebrate Cinco de Mayo Responsibly
Ventura County, Ca. – Whether it is meeting with a small group of friends or holding a virtual get together, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office encourages the public to celebrate the holiday responsibly by designating a sober driver.
“Don’t ruin the celebrations by putting yourself and others at risk and driving impaired,” says Captain Shane Matthews said. “If you’re planning on drinking, plan on getting a sober ride home.”
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office also reminds the public that in addition to alcohol, drugs may also impair, including marijuana. Always be sure to check your medications and avoid driving after use if there is a “do not operate heavy machinery,” “may cause drowsiness” or other warning label.
Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
