[ARCHIVED] Cinco De Mayo Multi-Agency DUI Task Force – Do not Drive Under the Influence

Task Force Cinco De Mayo 2021 (002)

For Immediate Release  - May 3, 2021 

Contact: Lt. James Steng 

Phone: 928-266-5060 

The Law Enforcement Agencies in Northern AZ want to take the time to remind you as always, our Officers, Deputies and Troopers will be patrolling 24 hours a day 7 days a week to keep our communities safe.

 As Cinco De Mayo approaches, we know there will be celebrations and gatherings.  We want to let you know we will have increased enforcement efforts to keep the roadways as safe as possible for travel. In addition, Law Enforcement in Northern Arizona will conduct a multi-agency DUI Task Force on Cinco De Mayo along Route 66 from state line to state line.  

 It is our hope that by publicizing this task force and advising the public of this event, people will be encouraged to be wise and not drive while under the influence.  A taxi, Uber, LYFT, Shuttle or Designated Driver is a much cheaper and safer option than taking a chance of driving while intoxicated.

Do not take a chance of ruining your life or the life of someone else by driving intoxicated. Being arrested for DUI is a very costly life event. If you are arrested and convicted of DUI, you can face a low-end cost of around $5000. That does not include missed time from work or with family. DUI results in mandatory jail time if convicted, with a minimum of one night in jail, and incarceration increases with severity of the crime.

Please take this time to prepare for your travel and celebration. Help us keep everyone safe on the roads as you enjoy Cinco De Mayo.
