San Marcos police and bars working to reduce DUIs

I actually like the program. So often people feel they are less impaired than they really are. People do not realize they are impaired until they are driving. Some pull over (sometimes too late). Other times people feel they are on the way home and can soldier through. People get into that car because their house is usually minutes away and they do not want the inconvenience.  The easier you can make it for patrons the better. If you or someone you love is charged with a DUI or other crime you need to call our office now at (858) 751-4384 for a free consultation.

Many of the bars in San Marcos are working with cab companies and ride-sharing companies to reduce DWI/DUI rates in the city by making sure patrons have a safe ride home.

"Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, it's packed from 5 p.m. until 2 in the morning," said Nina Hutchinson, manager at Louie's Oyster House and Beer Garden.

Louie's is offering free cab rides to patrons, while other bars have teamed up with Uber to offer a similar program.

"Friends want to meet up in one place, and when you get there, nobody wants to drive. But now that you have Uber we go, 'Oh, you can just Uber,'" said Nick Serros, a Texas State student.

After San Marcos voted to extend alcohol sales to 2 a.m. in 2008, the city saw DWI rates jump 16 percent. Since peaking with 360 DWI/DUI arrests between June 2011 and May 2012, the city has seen a 15 percent reduction in cases over the past year.

San Marcos Police Chief Chase Stapp said the addition of Uber can help the downward trend continue.

"It gives the officers another option of things to suggest to people when it's clear they need a ride," said Stapp.

With Uber operating in San Marcos, DWI/DUI rates fell in July 2015 compared to 2014, but rose in August 2015 compared to the previous year.
