Driving drunk is never OK.

As a reminder, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department will set up a DUI Sobriety Checkpoint Saturday to look for potentially impaired drivers.

The checkpoint is paid for through grants from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, according to a news release from the department.

For those planning to go out and drink alcohol, the department has a few safety tips:

— If going out with friends, designate a non-drinking driver.

— Take away car keys from friends who are impaired.

— Take a taxi home or call a sober friend for a ride.

— If hosting a party, remind guests to plan ahead and designate a sober driver or stay the night.
