San Diego Sheriff's California DUI Deputies To Crackdown On Drunk Drivers On Halloween: additional San Diego California DUI Patrols Scheduled

On October 31st, deputies will be conducting additional San Diego California DUI patrols in communities within the jurisdiction of the Sheriff's Department, attorneys are told.

While children have a ghoulishly fun time trick or treating on Halloween, San Diego California DUI Sheriff's Deputies will be busy looking for San Diego California DUI drivers across San Diego County.

Deputies arrested six drivers for San Diego California DUI on Halloween last year. Five people were arrested for San Diego California DUI driving on Halloween 2012. So far this year, 1,311 people have been arrested for San Diego California DUI by the Sheriff's Department. In 2013, deputies arrested 1,888 people for driving drunk San Diego California, lawyers say.

The goal is to get San Diego California DUI drivers off our roads and prevent crashes that can cause serious injury or death.

Here are some sober rider options for Halloween:

• Be My Designated Driver
• Metropolitan Transit System (MTS)
• North County Transit District (NCTD)

"You should never drink and drive, especially on Halloween when children are out on the street." said Sheriff Bill Gore. "If you drink, get a designated driver. Remember: BUZZED DRIVING IS DRUNK DRIVING!"
