CHP To Conduct DUI Checkpoint

chplogoOn Friday, August 27, the California Highway Patrol Newhall Area Office will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint in the unincorporated area of Los Angeles County. The checkpoint will begin at approximately 8:30 P.M. and conclude at approximately 2:30 A.M.

The location will be announced just prior to the operation. Motorists approaching the checkpoint will see informational signs advising them of a sobriety checkpoint ahead. Once diverted into the lane, motorists will be detained only a few moments while an officer explains the purpose of the checkpoint.

The goal of the DUI checkpoint is to create awareness among the motoring public, to deter people from driving under the influence, and to keep the streets safe for all. The goal is to apprehend the drivers who fail to heed warnings. Checkpoints tend to reduce the number of drinking drivers on the road. Even though arrest totals do not rise dramatically, the psychological influence a checkpoint has on the motoring public is of major value.

Traffic volume permitting, all vehicles will be checked. If traffic volume becomes too heavy, vehicles to be checked will be selected by a pre-set standard, such as every fifth or tenth vehicle, in order to assure objectivity.
