The Concord Police Department arrested two drivers on suspicion of DUI while conducting a DUI enforcement patrol on November 18. 

Concord Police Department issued a reminder to drivers regarding driving under the influence, “Impaired driving is not just from alcohol. Some prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs may interfere with driving. Always follow directions for use and read warning labels about driving or “operating heavy machinery,” which includes driving a car. While medicinal and recreational marijuana is legal, driving under the influence of marijuana is illegal.”

The Concord Police Department will be holding DUI enforcement patrols throughout the year. 

Drivers charged with DUI face at least $13,500 in fines and penalties, as well as a suspended license.
