Tigard Police Department

Choose Your Ride

The Tigard Police DUII Taxi serves to encourage driver-responsibility. Remember, if you plan to drink, don’t drive. Call for a taxi, a sober driver or use public transportation to get to your destination safely. If you get behind the wheel of a vehicle while intoxicated; you may end up in the back seat of a police vehicle. And that ride will be taking you to jail.

The national average for DUII-related costs is $10,000. The lasting effects however can be life-long. This year, Tigard Police arrested nearly 100 drivers for DUII. A significant number of those arrests also resulted in traffic crashes—many of them resulting in life-threatening injuries.

The Tigard Police DUII Taxi serves as a reminder that Tigard has zero tolerance for impaired driving.

Did you know...

  • Last year, more than 10,000 people died as a result of alcohol-impaired crashes: one every 51 minutes
  • Alcohol impaired motor vehicle crashes cost more than an estimated $37 billion annually

The Tigard Police DUII Taxi was made possible in part through asset-forfeiture funds as well as community support from Sirennet, a Tigard-based business specializing in emergency vehicle lighting and equipment.

Remember: If you get behind the wheel of a vehicle while intoxicated you may end up in the back seat of a police vehicle—and that ride will take you to jail. So please…make the right call. If not for yourself—for everyone else.
