The Pima County Sheriff's Department will be conducting a DUI Sobriety Checkpoint on Saturday.

The Sheriff's Department would like to remind the public of the dangers of impaired driving. If you are stopped, you may:

  • Lose your license
  • Pay excessive attorney's fees
  • Have your car impounded
  • Be fined upon conviction
  • Be required to install an ignition interlock device in your car at your cost
  • Spend time in jail
  • End up with a criminal record

PCSD says they will continue their efforts to eliminate impaired driving in Pima County, including "buzzed" driving.

The Sheriff's Department says to make a plan before going out and consuming alcohol. A few safety tips include:

  • Designate a non-drinking driver prior to consuming alcohol
  • Get a ride home from ride-share services like Uber, Lyft or a taxi
