It’s simple: if you plan on drinking, don’t be driving. 

The University of Central Flordia Police Department will be stepping up DUI enforcement tonight to help get drunk drivers off the road, according to an email sent to students on behalf of UCFPD Chief Richard Beary. 


The Orange County Sheriff’s Office blood alcohol testing trailer will be stationed on North Orion Boulevard near Bright House Networks Stadium.

“Drivers suspected of being under the influence could be pulled over by police and asked to complete a roadside sobriety test,” the email says. “Those who fail the test will be taken to the trailer for a breath sample and then, if they fail that test, transported to the Orange County Jail.”

The email also reminded students to keep an eye on drinks and never leave your drink unattended. Also, do not accept drinks from people you don’t know or trust. 

“Never put lives at risk by getting behind the wheel if you’ve consumed alcohol, and don’t let your friends make that mistake. Make responsible choices that help to keep you and your fellow Knights safe.”
