DUI Checkpoints in Sacramento on 4th July Weekend: Check Details Here

On Friday night, the Sacramento Police Department and the California Highway Patrol will be conducting DUI checkpoints in Sacramento County.

According to a news release from the agency, police will be stationed in midtown between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m. Authorities will be on the lookout for any indications of impaired driving caused by alcohol or drugs.

The department stated in a news release that the checkpoints are primarily aimed at promoting public safety by discouraging drivers from driving impaired, rather than making arrests.

According to a police spokesperson, the location of the checkpoint is determined by analyzing past DUI crashes and arrests. The specific location of the checkpoint will not be disclosed to the public in advance.

Officers from the South Sacramento office of the California Highway Patrol will be conducting a DUI checkpoint in an unincorporated area of south Sacramento on July 5th. The operating hours for Friday night are from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.

CHP has announced that it will provide the public with specific details regarding the time and location of the checkpoint two hours prior to the commencement of the operation. It will select a location that experiences high levels of foot traffic in the vicinity.

The CHP aims to guarantee the secure passage of every driver through proactive enforcement and education, as stated in a news release by the department. “Sobriety/driver license checkpoints have shown to be a successful method.”

Drivers who are charged with a first-time DUI can expect to have their license suspended and be required to pay an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties as per FOX 40 News.

If individuals intend to consume alcohol, use substances, or take prescription medications that may impair their driving skills, law enforcement advises them to either stay at home or utilize a ride-share service.
