Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Temecula Station to hold DUI Checkpoint

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Temecula Station will hold a DUI Checkpoint on Friday, July 10, from 8 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. at an undisclosed location within city limits. Checkpoint locations are chosen based on a history of DUI crashes and arrests.

According to the sheriff’s department, the primary purpose of checkpoints is not to make arrests, but to promote public safety by deterring drivers from driving impaired. During the checkpoint, officers will look for signs that drivers are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

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.
