Increased patrols throughout holiday weekend.
The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department wants to remind you to be responsible and not drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs this Labor Day weekend.
Watch for increased patrols by deputies across the county beginning on Friday, September 2 through Labor Day on Monday, September 5.
During Labor Day weekend 2021 (Friday, September 3, 2021 through Monday, September 6, 2021), 111 people were arrested countywide for DUI.
So far in 2022, 4,450 people have been arrested across San Diego County for impaired driving.
Driving under the influence doesn’t just mean alcohol. It also means driving under the influence of prescription drugs or marijuana.
If you do drink, be sure to have a designated driver, ride sharing service or taxi ready.
