Two drivers were arrested for suspected DUI and three drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license during a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on April 7 in the City of Temecula.
The checkpoint was held at Old Town Front Street and First Street from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. More than 200 vehicles were contacted.
Checkpoint locations are determined based on reported incidents of impaired driving-related incidents. The primary purpose of DUI checkpoints is to promote public safety by taking suspected impaired drivers off the roads.
Funding for this checkpoint was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Southwest Station reminds the public that impaired driving is not just from alcohol. Some prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs may interfere with driving. While medicinal and recreational marijuana are legal, driving under the influence of marijuana is illegal. Drivers charged with a first-time DUI face an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties, as well as a suspended license, the department warned.
