‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ in South San Francisco

Drivers in South San Francisco make see an uptick in patrol cars on the streets through the end of the year, as enforcement on drunk drivers ramps up.

South San Francisco Police Department is running a “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” mobilization to identify and cite drivers who are driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

“Beginning today, on Dec. 16 and continuing into the New Year, you will see stepped up enforcement watching closely for anyone who is driving impaired,” said Chief Jeff Azzopardi.“We want to keep our roads safe for holiday travelers, so we will have zero tolerance for drunk or drugged driving.”

Drunk driving is the most common citation, but driving erratically while under the influence of marijuana, prescription medication or illicit drugs can get result in the same type of arrest as DUIs.

In 2014, 1,155 deaths were reported on highways due to alcohol or drug impaired drivers.
