June 28, 2017

El Paso, TX – With the upcoming Independence Day celebration, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office will be increasing its patrols throughout the El Paso County to minimize traffic congestion, prevent collisions, protect private and public properties from damages and keep residents safe during the celebration.

Sheriff’s Office deputies will be proactively patrolling throughout the Independence Day holiday and will identify and hold all violators responsible in an effort minimize the risks to the public and motorists.

El Paso County is a “No Refusal” county, if a driver is arrested for Driving While Intoxicated and he/she refuses to submit a sample of their breath for analysis, a search warrant will be obtained and a sample of their blood will be taken. That sample will then be submitted for analysis to determine blood alcohol concentration. Either way, the driver will be booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility.

The Sheriff’s Office would also like to remind its citizens of the laws that apply to ATV use and safety. A person that is younger than 14 must be accompanied and be under direct supervision of a responsible adult. A person cannot operate an ATV on public property unless the person wears a safety helmet and eye protection. A person may not carry a passenger on an ATV unless it is designed to carry a passenger. An ATV operated on public property must have a lighted headlight and taillight after sunset. Here are some safety tips to help keep riders safe.

1. Always wear a DOT- compliant helmet, goggles, long sleeves, long pants, over the ankle boots, and gloves.

2. Never ride on paved roads except to cross when it is SAFE and PERMITTED by law. ATVs are designed to be operated off-highways.

3. Never ride under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.

WHAT IS SATELLITE BOOKING?
