LA MESA -- Can't accuse the La Mesa Police of not playing fair.
With Cinco de Mayo celebrations about to really rev up, police officers are warning local residents that there will be extra troops out watching for drunk drivers tonight.
The press release refers to the police tactic as "DUI Saturation Patrol,'' and perhaps the pun was intended.
"If your Cinco de Mayo turns into a Cinco de Drinko. . . .Please don't drink and drive,'' said Sergent Stoney, in the same release.
The officers suggested to think about these tips for avoiding DUI charges:
-- Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin
-- Before drinking, please designate a sober driver
-- If you’re impaired, and haven't designated a sober driver, use a
taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public
transportation so you are sure to get home safely;
-- If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, don’t hesitate to
contact your local law enforcement; Report Drunk Drivers Call
