To enhance safety for everyone this weekend, the Downers Grove Police Department will conduct traffic patrols focused on impaired drivers and seat belt violations.
Whether you attend a parade or make a trip to a local pub, if a friend is showing signs of being impaired, don't let them get behind the wheel.
- Plan a safe way home as part of your party plans.
- Designate a sober driver.
- If you have had a couple of drinks and are feeling "buzzed" don't drive because YOU ARE IMPAIRED.
- Call a taxi; call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation to ensure that you get home safely.
