The Fontana Police Division introduced it is going to be holding its first DUI checkpoint of the New Yr.
The checkpoint will happen on Saturday, Jan. 8 from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. at an undisclosed location throughout the metropolis limits.
Checkpoint areas are chosen based mostly on a historical past of DUI crashes and arrests. The first goal of checkpoints is to not make arrests, however to advertise public security by deterring drivers from driving impaired, police mentioned.
Throughout the checkpoint, officers will search for indicators that drivers are drunk and/or medication.
Funding for this program was offered by a grant from the California Workplace of Visitors Security, by way of the Nationwide Freeway Visitors Security Administration.
