The Chandler Police Department’s Traffic Section will offer the Know Your Limit educational awareness program at Oktoberfest in downtown Chandler on Saturday, September 29, 2018. 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.
Officers will provide the participant with an informational flier outlining the program.
The ultimate goal of the Know Your Limit 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.
The Traffic Section will also conduct saturation patrols throughout the area on the same evening with the goal of removing impaired drivers from the road before the damaging, and often tragic, consequences result from the poor decision to operate a vehicle while under the influence.
Please remember to always wear your seatbelt, drive defensively, and call for a ride when alcohol consumption is a part of your celebration. Please, get home safe.
