Fortuna Police & Alcoholic Beverage Control Promote Safety during the Holiday Season

The winter holidays are a time to spend time with family and friends ringing in another year, but also a time when people can make poor choices that put themselves and others at risk on the road. 

The Fortuna Police Department, in collaboration with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) will be utilizing education, prevention programs and enforcement operations in the community and at licensed establishments, to help make the winter holiday season as safe as possible.

To help spread the message about the dangers of drunk and drugged driving, the Fortuna Police is partnering with ABC, through its Alcohol Police Partnership Program (APP), California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to help keep impaired drivers off roads.

During the high-visibility enforcement campaign Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, which runs from Dec. 14-Jan. 1, many law enforcement agencies will have more officers on the road conducting saturation patrols looking for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. The California ABC will be doing its part by checking on businesses licensed to sell alcohol and also large community gatherings where alcohol is sold. 

The Fortuna Police also reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Marijuana, prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.

Drunk driving continues to be a huge problem in this country, and more recently, marijuana and drug-impaired driving. People are out and about shopping for the holidays and going to or hosting parties, so it is important that everyone acts responsibly behind the wheel.
