All vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested, warns an SAPD advisory. "Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs–Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest."
