Labor Day safety reminder

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- As we take time to celebrate Labor Day, the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office would like to remind everybody to make safety a part of their weekend. If you choose to drink alcohol, please drink responsibly and designate a sober driver. Please take the necessary steps to make sure this extended weekend is a safe one for everybody on the road. If you see a drunk driver on the road, please pull over and call 911.

“For many, Labor Day weekend is the last chance for families and friends to come together before the start of the school year. The purpose of this message is to deter drunk drivers and prevent someone from becoming severely injured or killed,” District Attorney Mike Ramos said. “Please drink responsibly this weekend for your sake and the sake of others on the road.”
