The Yuma Police Department wants everyone to bring in the New Year safely and responsibly. They will be conducting an impaired driving enforcement detail on New Year’s Eve. There will be additional officers working at various times to detect and apprehend impaired drivers. A significant number of fatal accidents in Arizona involve impaired drivers and holiday weekends tend to result in increased numbers of impaired motorists on roadways across the nation. Local and state law enforcement agencies encourage motorists to do their part by making safe transportation arrangements prior to consuming intoxicating beverages, saving numbers of local cab companies in phones prior to going out and reporting suspected impaired drivers.
