Report Drunk Drivers

In 2009, 950 people were killed and 25,914 were injured in alcohol-related crashes in California. The Grass Valley Police Department is asking drivers to report suspected drunk drivers to curb these numbers in our area. Sgt Steve Johnson with the Grass Valley police department explains what you should do if you see someone driving erratically.

“If you’re behind the vehicle, or perhaps if you’ve even lost sight, get the vehicle description, make, model, color, direction of travel, and obviously a license plate is very helpful.”

If you are driving, use your hands free device to call 911 and report the drunk driver and as many details as you can about the incident, Sgt. Johnson says do not try to stop the car or detain the driver. Leave that to a law enforcement officer.
