Know Your Limit is designed to help potentially impaired drivers make informed decisions as to whether or not they are capable of operating a motor vehicle safely.

Officers will be present in front of Lakanuki (6201 Minaret Road) with several PAS devices and educational material. Citizens will be offered the opportunity to submit to a voluntary PAS test, also known as a breath test.

The results will be provided to the citizen, along with information on driving under the influence and a token for a free taxi ride provided by Mammoth Taxi. The tokens have been paid for by Mono County Behavioral Health and can be used the night of this event or any other night for a ride home provided that the ride is within the town limits.

If the taxi ride is outside town limits (i.e., Main Lodge, the Bluffs, or Crowley Lake), the token is only good for its face value of $5.

This educational program offers citizens the opportunity to learn more about alcohol consumption and its effect on their breath alcohol content. MLPD hopes that by providing citizens with a better understanding of their own limits on alcohol consumption that they will choose not to drive if they are above the legal limit.

The Mammoth Lakes Police Department will offer this informative opportunity several times throughout the year in Mammoth Lakes.
