SAN JACINTO - The San Jacinto Police Department will be conducting a DUI/driver's license checkpoint on Saturday, May 10 from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. at an undisclosed location within the city of San Jacinto.

DUI checkpoints are conducted to educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving as well as to identify offenders and get them off the street.

All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. This DUI/driver's license checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies; as well as ensuring drivers have a valid driver’s license.

The goals of these checkpoints are to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired Advertisement

driving and to encourage the use of sober designated drivers.

A DUI checkpoint is a proven-effective method for achieving this goal. By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the San Jacinto Police Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving.

Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested. Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs – Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest. The public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 9-1-1 if they see a suspected impaired driver.
