Cuatro Ways To Avoid Cinco de Mayo Problems

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

"Can't accuse the La Mesa Police of not playing fair?" Actually, if there's one general accusation that can be truthfully leveled against them it's that at least some of them really don't play fair--at least with respect to drunk driving. You'll recall the infamous 2008 incident involving a certain elected official.
