Heads Up Safety Pledge
The City of Santa Clarita and Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station are committed to improving traffic safety and reducing the number of collisions on our streets. Following the implementation of the award-winning “Heads Up” public safety campaign in 2017, statistics show the City’s annual collision rate decreased 11 percent. In 2020, the City continues to make big strides in reducing collisions and the rate has dropped nearly 50 percent since 2017.
While the number of overall collisions in the City has dropped by 50 percent since 2017, the number of DUI collisions has remained constant. In fact, the percentage of total collisions that are DUI related has risen from seven to 10 percent. To address this issue, the City is asking for bars and restaurants in Santa Clarita to take the following pledge:
I pledge to promote in my business the dangers of drinking and driving. I pledge to educate myself and my staff on serving responsibly and ensure my business follows all applicable federal, state and local laws regarding alcohol sales. We pledge to be a Heads Up establishment committed to eliminating DUIs in Santa Clarita.
When it comes to instances of DUI in Santa Clarita, the City, Sheriff’s Department, residents and businesses all play an important role. Our business commits to the pledge above – and encourages our employees to do the same – to show our patrons that we are dedicated to being a Heads Up establishment that promotes safety and is joining the fight against driving under the influence.
