Whittier, CA – The Whittier Police Department will conduct a DUI/driver’s license checkpoint from 7 p.m. today to 3 a.m. Saturday in the city of Santa Fe Springs.
A major component of the checkpoints, beyond taking dangerous drivers off the road, is to increase awareness of the consequences of impaired driving and to encourage using sober designated drivers.
Police say a DUI checkpoint is a proven, effective method for achieving this goal. By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, police believe motorists will be deterred from drinking and driving.
Officers will also be checking for those who are driving with a suspended driver’s license as well as those who are unlicensed. Any motorist found driving with an invalid license may have their vehicle impounded for 30 days and be issued a citation.
For more information call Sgt. Dan Lowe at 562-945-8256.
