“This is a ‘Zero Tolerance’ crackdown so ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over!’” said Deputy Manuel Cruz from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Traffic Bureau.
After falling dramatically for five straight years, deaths because someone failed to designate a sober driver are increasing. Over the past three years, DUI collisions in areas contracted by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department have claimed 21 lives and resulted in 497 injuries of our neighbors and friends.
