Portland Police Bureau Tells Residents to Use a Designated Driver

Saturday, January 09, 2016

 

The Portland Police Bureau is asking residents to make not drinking and driving one of their top resolutions for the New Year.

According to the Police Bureau, Portland Police officers arrested 37 impaired drivers in the month of December alone. The bureau’s stiff response to drunken driving was funded with a grant from Oregon Impact.

Now that the holiday season is over the Police Bureau is not planning on relaxing on DUII violations. 

Additional DUII enforcement units will be added during the month of January to ensure community safety and to prevent endless tragedies, according to a Police Bureau press release.

The Police Bureau also reminded drivers that rug impaired driving is certainly just as dangerous as alcohol impaired driving. 

They recommend that those that do choose to imbibe find designated rivers, call a taxi and remember that buzzed driving is drunk driving.
