A man was driving in Folsom when he made a left turn in front of a Folsom Police Department officer on Riley Street in the vicinity of Lembi Drive.

The website for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department indicated that Lucero was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail during the early hours of Sunday, October 23, 2016 and is on a $90,000 bail.

This is incident demonstrates the dangers and repercussions of driving under the influence. Always plan in advance by having a sober motorist drive you home whenever you are consuming alcohol. This can go along way to prevent accidents such as this one. Using a designated driver prevents traumatic experiences and losses for others.

Drunk Driving

Motorists that are found driving under the influence of alcohol not only cause injuries or death to themselves but also to innocent pedestrians, passengers and other innocent drivers on the roadway. Approximately one third of all fatalities caused by traffic collisions are created by impaired drivers. Anyone who is found at fault of an automobile accident while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is considered negligent.
