A checkpoint searching for drivers who’re beneath the affect of medication or alcohol is deliberate this weekend, police stated Wednesday.
The Escondido Police Department will maintain a DUI checkpoint on Friday beginning at 6 p.m. at an undisclosed location. DUI checkpoint places are chosen primarily based on areas with larger charges of crashes associated to impaired driving, based on the EPD.
“The Escondido Police Division reminds the general public that impaired driving isn’t just from alcohol,” Officer Scott Walters stated. “Some prescription medicines and over-the-counter medicine could intervene with driving. Whereas medicinal and leisure marijuana are authorized, driving beneath the affect of marijuana is prohibited.”
