Get a ride, not a DUI this Memorial Day holiday weekend

Get a ride, not a DUI this Memorial Day holiday weekend. The Scottsdale Police Department, in collaboration with the Governor's Office of Highway Safety, Arizona Department of Transportation and National Traffic Safety Administration, will be conducting DUI enforcement during the Memorial Day weekend. The Task Force will operate in the evening hours from Friday, May 24 through Sunday, May 26. Also participating in the Task Force will be our law enforcement partners from Chandler Police, the Department of Public Safety, Gilbert Police, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, Mesa Police, Salt River Police, Tempe Police and Queen Creek Police.

The purpose of the DUI Task Force is to contact drivers who have made the disastrous decision to drive impaired and remove them from the roadway before they hurt others or themselves. This will be done by conducting saturation patrols in different areas of the city.

DUIs are 100 percent preventable. The results of DUI collisions can be devastating and tragic. If people plan on consuming alcoholic beverages or using recreational marijuana, we strongly recommend they also plan ahead to have a sober designated driver who can get them home safely. Other safe options include using a ride-share or a taxi service.

Please drive sober or find a safe alternate way home.
