Sheriff's deputies plan on keeping an eye out for drunken drivers in two weeks during a sobriety checkpoint in Temecula, a sergeant said today.

Deputies will set up their operation at 9 p.m. June 21 at an undisclosed part of the city. The checkpoint will end at 3 a.m. the next day, Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Joe Greco said.

Deputies plan on checking drivers for their licenses and watch for any signs of drunken driving, Greco said.

I appreciate these checkpoints, as we have a new driver in our family and I want all of our kids to be safe.
I will say, though, that the last checkpoint we stumbled upon completely shut down at 10pm and let everyone through. This was a Friday night on Winchester Road. I would imagine the people under the influence are not heading home any earlier than 10pm, so why did they close down so early?

It's sobriety check point in name only. The idea is to do searches without a warrant or probable cause. DUI is the excuse. They can ticket you for anything and they will. The sheriff's department has become a fiefdom under Sniff. The majority voted him back in so sit down shut up and take it. You can forget about a CCW as he will deny it. Personal protection is not a reason to get a CCW in Riverside County. You will have to wait until the courts override this un-American despot. The board of supes will do nothing to reign him in and they will only praise what a great job he is doing. Meanwhile, if you mouth off to a deputy you will get arrested for a 148. You have no right to an opinion with a Riverside County Sheriff deputy.
