WHY:
The Los Angeles Police Department and our allied partners are joining forces to send a message to everyone this New Year's Eve and weekend. We want everyone to drive responsibly and avoid becoming another statistic by being arrested for driving under the influence. We urge the public to not get behind the wheel and drive if you become intoxicated or consume any type of drugs. Drugs such as Marijuana, illicit drugs, or prescription medication can impair your judgment and these drugs will get you the same DUI arrest as alcohol if you are caught driving impaired.

If you become impaired, use a designated driver, plan ahead, use public transportation or other means of transportation to get to your destination safely.

CONTACT:
For additional information, please contact Media Relations at (213) 486-5910 or Detective Lisset Fuentes, Valley Traffic Division at (818) 644-8021.
