ABC reminds licensees to help prevent DUIs and check identifications carefully

The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, or ABC, reminds ABC licensees to prevent DUIs and check identifications closely to prevent underage drinking during the 2023 holiday season.

ABC also encourages the public to have a plan in place for a sober driver to get everyone home safely.

ABC is partnering with the California Office of Traffic Safety and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to help keep communities safe through New Year’s Day.

Remember to designate a sober driver, use public transportation or a ride-hailing service.

“We want everyone to get home safe this holiday season,” said ABC Director Joseph McCullough. “Remember to make a plan before you celebrate. ABC licensees can also help keep communities safe by carefully checking identifications and ensuring customers are not overserved.”

The department has several education and prevention programs available to ABC licensees that promote responsible service of alcoholic beverages.

ABC agents and local law enforcement officers will be out this holiday season to monitor compliance and increase public safety.

Visit ABC’s website to see how the department protects communities through education, prevention and enforcement programs designed to increase compliance with California’s alcoholic beverage laws.

ABC is a department of the Business, Consumer Services, and Housing Agency.
