Don’t Drink and Drive (Frontera, 9/14/12)
TIJUANA, BC - On the eve of the celebration of the holidays, this weekend, the Municipal Public Safety Secretariat (SSPM) reported checkpoints are in place throughout the city with breathalyzer units. He called on the population to celebrate responsibly and above all, if you have any alcoholic drinks, do not drive any type of vehicle to avoid a date of joy that ends in disgrace.
Five SSPM checkpoints will operate Friday and Saturday. On Saturday night, the General Directorate of Police and Transit will also operate checkpoints at Avenida Independencia, Paseo de los Héroes and Glorieta México, with 250 patrol officers, commercial police and auxiliaries.
Police will monitor the "Grito" de Independencia ceremony led by Municipal President Carlos Bustamante Anchondo. It is estimated 40-50 thousand will attend in the afternoon. For an alternate route travel towards the Centro and Río areas and on the Boulevares Cuauhtémoc Sur and Norte, Sánchez Taboada and Abelardo L. Rodríguez. The SSPM suggests motorists heed this warning to avoid any trouble. http://www.frontera.info/EdicionEnLinea/Notas/Policiaca/14092012/622337.aspx
