Cinco de Mayo is near: Please Celebrate Responsibly
 
Culver City, Calif. — For many people across the country, Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) is a time for fun and celebrations that may involve drinking.
 
The holiday, which happens to fall on a Sunday this year, is a reminder to the public to celebrate responsibly and not drive impaired.
 
This May 5th, the Culver City Police Department will have additional officers on patrol from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m., ready to stop and arrest drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
 
“We understand the importance of this day to many people, but this does not give anyone an excuse to drink and drive,” Culver City Police Department Chief Bixby said. “There are many options to get home safely that don’t involve driving under the influence.”
 
The Culver City Police Department encourages everyone to plan ahead and use a designated sober driver, ride-share, or public transportation. The Culver City Police Department also wants to remind everyone that a “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications and marijuana can all be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.
 
Funding for Cinco de Mayo DUI enforcement is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
