CORONA POLICE DEPARTMENT IS ARRESTING DRUNK DRIVERS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

Corona, CA—This holiday season, the Corona Police Department will work around the clock to keep drivers and passengers safe as they search for impaired drivers. From Dec. 15, 2017 through New Years Day, law enforcement is partnering with the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in a special year-end Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement mobilization to get impaired drivers off the street and to spread the word about this dangerous crime.
As part of the holiday enforcement campaign period, Police, Sheriff, and the CHP will be deploying DUI Checkpoints and DUI Saturation Patrols during the upcoming 18-day DUI crackdown throughout the region. The Corona Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Driver License checkpoint on Dec. 15 between the hours of 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. at undisclosed area in within the City that has high frequencies of DUI collisions and/or arrests.
Drivers are encouraged to download the Designated Driver VIP, or “DDVIP,” free mobile app for Android or iPhone.  The DDVIP app helps find nearby bars and restaurants that feature free incentives for the designated sober driver, from free non-alcoholic drinks to free appetizers and more.  
Funding for this DUI operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1’.
