The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Department is planning to set up two checkpoints this weekend, one is a Driver’s License Checkpoint on Thursday (10/21), to take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The second will be a D.U.I. Checkpoint on Friday (10/22), from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday.
The purpose of the Driver’s License Checkpoints is to deter the occurrence of hit-and-run crashes with unlicensed drivers involved. D.U.I. Checkpoints are set up to educate the public on the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and is designed to safely remove drivers under the influence from driving.
