SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — The Sacramento Police Division will probably be holding a DUI checkpoint on Friday, Sept. 23, close to Sacramento State College.
This DUI checkpoint will probably be held within the space of Howe and College avenues from 7:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. and was chosen because of a historical past of DUI crashes and arrests in that space, in accordance with the Sacramento Police Division.
Police stated the checkpoint will probably be put in place to discourage drivers from driving below the affect of medication and/or alcohol.
Officers will probably be on the lookout for drivers who’re suspected to be below the affect through the checkpoint.
The Sacramento Police Division needs to remind the general public that “impaired driving isn’t just from alcohol,” and “some prescription drugs or over-the-counter medication could intrude with driving.”
The police division reminds anybody who’s planning to drink to not drive and make plans for a experience house earlier than going out. Drivers charged with a DUI for a first-time offense can withstand “$13,500 in fines and penalties, in addition to a suspended license.”
A grant from the California Workplace of Visitors Security, by the Nationwide Freeway Visitors Security Administration, funded this system.
