Atherton Police - Increased Holiday Season DUI Patrols

With the holiday season upon us, the Atherton Police Department will be conducting extra patrols on Friday and Saturday nights to reduce and/or eliminate driving under the influence of alcohol.

Those arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol will go to jail – no exceptions. In addition, a person arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol will face a driver’s license suspension, vehicle towing charges, court fines, attorney fees, and an increase of insurance premiums or cancellation of insurance.

A single driving under the influence of alcohol arrest will cost at least $10,000.

If you plan on celebrating the holidays with friends and family, have a plan to get home safely if you will be drinking. Ride sharing services, public transportation, taxicabs, friends and family are all acceptable solutions over driving under the influence of alcohol.

And remember, a designated driver is a driver who has consumed no alcohol, not a driver who has consumed less alcohol than everyone else.

The Atherton Police Department wishes you and yours a joyous and safe holiday season.
