BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. – Don’t rely on the “luck of the Irish” to get you home safely. Designate a sober driver before you celebrate! 

 The Bullhead City Police Department will be conducting a DUI saturation patrol on Friday, March 17th in conjunction with the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. Specially trained officers will be patrolling Bullhead City streets in search of drug and alcohol-impaired drivers.

 This targeted enforcement effort was made possible by funds awarded to the Bullhead City Police Department by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) to target and arrest impaired drivers.

 “We want to thank GOHS for their support in the form of grant funding that we are using to help stop impaired drivers before they cause a collision,” said Bullhead City Police Department Traffic Supervisor Cpl. Eddie Espinoza. “These zero tolerance targeted enforcement efforts are intended to either remove drug and alcohol-impaired drivers from Bullhead City roadways or to promote good decision making before drinking and eliminate driving from the equation. The choice is up to the driver. If you choose to drive impaired by drugs or alcohol and are stopped by the Bullhead City Police, you will be arrested and you will be taken to jail.”

 Fines for first-time DUI offenders can exceed $10,000 and an arrest can lead to the impoundment of the involved vehicle for 20 days.

 We hope you have a happy and safe St. Patrick’s Day – remember to plan ahead and arrange a designated driver, cab or ride share.
