Alcohol Awareness Offered at Rockin’ Taco Street Fest

The Chandler Police Department’s Traffic Section, in conjunction with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, will be at the Rockin’ Taco Street Fest in Downtown Chandler on Saturday, September 15, 2018 to offer the Know Your Limit educational awareness program.  Know Your Limit is a non-enforcement program designed to educate the public on the effects alcohol has on an individual’s blood alcohol level.  Qualified officers will provide attendees with the opportunity to blow into a portable breath tester (PBT) who will then be able to see how their alcohol consumption affects the amount of alcohol in their bloodstream.

Participants can discuss their results with the officers and will also receive an informational flier outlining the program.

The ultimate goal of this program is to provide alcohol awareness to individuals who have consumed alcoholic beverages and allow them to understand their level of alcohol.  This information will allow individuals to make informed choices before they get behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Saturation patrols from members of the DUI Squad will occur as well.

Remember, always wear your seatbelt, drive defensively, and either designate a driver or call for a ride when alcohol consumption is part of your holiday celebration.

Please, get home safe.
