SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – As we take time to celebrate Labor Day, the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office would like to remind everybody to make safety a part of their weekend. If you choose to drink alcohol, please drink responsibly and designate a sober driver. Please take the necessary steps to make sure this extended weekend is a safe one for everybody on the road. If you see a drunk driver on the road, please pull over and call 911.
“I have seen far too many cases in my 25-year career as a prosecutor that either ended with someone severely injured or killed because of drunk driving,” District Attorney Mike Ramos said. “Please drink responsibly this weekend for your sake and the sake of others on the road.”
• Last year the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office filed 140 DUI-related cases that occurred during the Labor Day weekend.
• Of this amount, 7 involved serious injury.
• In 2014, 7,586 DUI-related cases were filed by the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office.
