Last updated 5/9/2016 at 10:46am

Cinco de Mayo is a time to celebrate. While most people will be responsible, some will make a bad decision by drinking and driving and putting people's lives in danger.

To protect the community from impaired drivers, the Sheriff's Department will be adding extra DUI patrols across San Diego County on today, May 5th.

Deputies arrested five drivers on suspicion of DUI on Cinco de Mayo in 2015. In comparison, the Sheriff's Department arrested four drivers during the same period in 2014.

"No matter what day it is, you should never drink and drive," said Sheriff Bill Gore. "If you do drink, have a designated driver ready or call a taxi or ride-sharing service. Remember, Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving."
