The Giants could clinch the World Series Sunday. If your celebration includes a party or bar-hopping, the Palo Alto Police Department has a message for you—designate a sober driver.
PAPD Investigative Services Division Manager Lt. Zach Perron said, “We’re all excited for the Giants! We would remind fans to always designate a non-drinking driver if they’re out celebrating. We want people to avoid the tendency to get into a car with the friend who has had the least amount to drink…we want them to get into a car driven by someone who has not been drinking, period. That’s the safest way to get home.”
Just to be sure that you understand that this isn’t a suggestion, Perron adds, “Nothing will ruin a fun night or celebration faster than a DUI arrest. Our officers, as always, will be on the look-out for drivers who are under the influence of alcohol.”
You’ve been warned.
Game time Sunday is 5 p.m. Pacific. Go Giants!
