Prompting this DUI enforcement is the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says Labor Day weekend is the second most deadly day of the year on our roadways. A report released by the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office in July finds 242 people were killed in car crashes in the county last year. Nearly half of those killed or 45% were under the influence of alcohol.
"By joining this nationwide effort, we will make the county's roadways safer for everyone throughout the Labor Day period.” says San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore. "If you've had too much to drink, don't even think about getting behind the wheel. Driving impaired is simply not worth the risk. Remember, we will be out in force and we will be watching, so Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”
