Police in Glendora and elsewhere in the Southland will be on the lookout this weekend for drivers under the influence, conducting DUI enforcement as part of a national campaign warning people to “drive sober or get pulled over.”

The patrol effort, which will span through the New Year’s Day weekend, will place extra focus on seeking drivers suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The purpose of the enforcement is “to show zero tolerance for drunk driving and keep roads safe,” said Sgt. Michael Henderson of the Glendora Police Department.

Henderson said people should remember that medications, over-the-counter drugs and marijuana can also impair driving, especially if taken together or with alcohol. He urged people to do research on how those drugs might affect them.

“This year has been challenging and difficult on all of us,” Glendale police Chief Matthew Egan said. “The last thing we need is more heartbreak and tragedy. Make the right choice by not driving impaired so everyone can have a safe holiday.”
