Be Safe, Be Sober This Holiday Season
National Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign Begins Dec. 14 2020

San Bruno, Calif. – This holiday season, the San Bruno Police Department wants to remind the public about the
importance of being safe and sober when you are driving.

While the COVID-19 pandemic is changing how we celebrate the holidays, the San Bruno Police Department is
dedicated to keeping the public safe and urges people to stay at home or use a designated sober driver if you
plan to drink.

Starting Dec. 14 and through New Year’s Day, the San Bruno Police Department will have officers on patrol
looking for drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. The enforcement effort is part
of a national campaign, Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over, intended to show zero tolerance for drunk driving and
keep roads safe.

“This year has been challenging and difficult on all of us,” Police Chief Ryan Johansen said. “The last thing we
need is more heartbreak and tragedy. Make the right choice by not driving impaired so everyone can have a safe
holiday.”

The San Bruno Police Department reminds the public that impaired driving is not just from alcohol. Prescription
medications, over-the-counter drugs and marijuana can also impair, especially in combination with alcohol and
other drugs. Do your research and understand how certain drugs you are taking may affect your driving ability.
Due to COVID-19, the state of California is asking residents to avoid large gatherings for the holidays to mitigate
the spread of the virus.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
