San Diego DUI Turkey Busts - California DUI attorney warning

Thanksgiving weekend is among the busiest travel times of the year (U.S. Department of Transportation) and deputies will be working around the clock to keep you safe on San Diego's roadways, say San Diego California DUI lawyers.

Sheriff's Deputies will be conducting additional DUI patrols across San Diego County from Thursday, November 27th (Thanksgiving) through Sunday, November 30th, San Diego California DUI attorneys say.

The goal is to get impaired drivers off our roads and prevent crashes that can cause serious injury or death.
Deputies arrested 29 drivers for DUI during Thanksgiving weekend last year. 26 people were arrested for impaired driving during the same time period in 2012. In 2011, deputies made 28 DUI arrests during Thanksgiving weekend.

So far this year, 1,404 people have been arrested for DUI by the Sheriff's Department. In 2013, deputies arrested 1,888 people for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

"This Thanksgiving, do the responsible thing and don't drink and drive." said Sheriff Bill Gore. "Remember: DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER!"

Here are some sober rider options for Thanksgiving:

• Be My Designated Driver
• Metropolitan Transit System (MTS)
• North County Transit District (NCTD)
If you are caught driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you will go to jail. To watch a public safety video on the high price of drinking and driving, follow the Sheriff's Department on VIMEO:
