Temecula Police planning checkpoint on April 26


Last updated 4/15/2019 at 4:07pm

The Temecula Police Department and the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on Friday, April 26, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 8 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.

DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, along with officers checking drivers for proper licensing.

The Temecula Police Department and Riverside County Sheriff’s Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.

In 2017, 1,120 people were killed in alcohol-involved crashes on California roads.

Funding for this checkpoint is provided to The Temecula PD / Riverside County Sheriff’s Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
