CHP DUI checkpoint planned for Saturday


Last updated 5/3/2019 at 10:30am

The California Highway Patrol, Temecula Area will conduct a sobriety/driver license checkpoint on Saturday, May 4, in the unincorporated area of Southwest Riverside County.

Motorists approaching the checkpoint will see informational signs advising them that a sobriety checkpoint is ahead. Once diverted into the lane, motorists will be detained only a few moments while an officer explains the purpose of the checkpoint and checks their driver license.

CHP sobriety checkpoints are conducted in accordance with the guidelines for checkpoint operations outlined in the California Supreme Court decision, Ingersoll vs. Palmer. Traffic volume permitting, all vehicles will be checked.

The CHP would like to remind all motorists to not drink and drive. DUI’s are 100 % avoidable. It’s simple; if you’re going to drink, don’t drive. Designate a sober driver and get to your destination safely.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
