Riverside Police Department issues 33 tickets and makes 3 traffic arrests

As part of the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign, the Riverside Police Department was out this holiday season working to save lives by keeping drunk drivers off our roads.

From Dec. 16, 2016, through Jan. 1, 2017, the Riverside Police Department arrested 3 drivers for driving on suspended driver’s licenses. In addition, 5 drivers and passengers received citations for not wearing seat belts and 13 drivers were cited for speeding.

In all, Officers worked 8 different details for a total of 31 hours of extra traffic enforcement. 28 vehicles were stopped in all.

“Too often, drivers get wrapped up in the excitement of the holidays and make the foolish decision to drive after drinking,” Sergeant Miller said. “But no one should ever drive impaired by alcohol or drugs. Always hand the keys to a sober driver or face the consequences. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
