DUI Checkpoint to be held in City of Wildomar

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Lake Elsinore Station will be conducting a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Driver’s License Checkpoint on Saturday, April 30, from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. at an undisclosed location within the City of Wildomar. Checkpoint locations are chosen based on a history of DUI crashes and arrests.

During the checkpoint, deputies will look for signs that drivers are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. “The safety of our community is and always will be our mission,” Sergeant Brad Foster said in a news release. “Driving under the influence is dangerous and puts a further strain on critical resources.”

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department reminds the public that impaired driving is not just from alcohol; some prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs may interfere with driving. Drivers charged with DUI face an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties, as well as a suspended license.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. To report a drunk driver, call 911.
