The Grand Junction Police Department wants everyone to enjoy the New Year’s Eve festivities, but to do so safely. If you intend to be drinking Alcohol or smoking Marijuana as part of your celebration, please don’t drive while you’re impaired. We don’t want to start 2018 by having to report a fatal car crash to your loved ones.
There are options available if you plan ahead; arrange for a sober designated driver, book a taxi or one of the other driver services we have locally. A short amount of time planning ahead may save you a lot of time and money later.
We will have additional Police Officers working over the New Year’s Holiday specifically looking for drivers who have decided to drive impaired, and put everyone else on the road at risk.
A DUI can cost you over $10,000 and disrupt your life by having no driving license.
