Cinco de Mayo is near: Please Celebrate Responsibly

For many people across the country, Cinco de Mayo (May 5) is a time for fun and celebrations may involve drinking.

This is a reminder for everyone to celebrate responsibly and not drive impaired.

This May 3rd, 4th, and 5th, the Milpitas Police Department will have additional officers on patrol during evening and early morning hours, ready to stop and arrest drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

We encourage everyone to plan ahead and use a designated sober driver, ride-share or public transportation. Remember, a “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications and marijuana can also 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.
