“Over the course of the past five years, DUI collisions have claimed 11 lives and resulted in 255 injury crashes harming 363 of our friends and neighbors,” said Sergeant Cohen.

The checkpoint was one of many that have been or will be conducted throughout the year in Santa Clarita. It started at 6 p.m. and ended at 2 a.m. The location of Thursday’s checkpoint was on Lyons Avenue and Wheeler Road.

The results of this Thursday’s DUI checkpoint are as follows: 1165 vehicles were screened; three drivers were given FST’s; two drivers were arrested for DUI; 15 unlicensed and suspended drivers were sent to court; 13 drivers were cited and sent to court for various Vehicle Code violations; and three vehicles were towed, two with 30-day impound holds.

“If everyone planned ahead for a sober non-drinking designated drivers these numbers could be lowered to zero,” Cohen said.

DUI Checkpoints along with regularly scheduled high visibility DUI enforcement serves as a proven deterrent with the goal of removing alcohol and drugged impaired drivers and heightening awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence.

Those arrested and convicted for DUI can expect jail time, vehicle storage or impound fees, license suspension, fines, fees, DUI classes, insurance rates will increase and other expenses that can push the cost of an arrest to over $10,000; not to mention the embarrassment they’ll face around family, friends & co-workers.

Please keep our streets and highways safer every day of the week: Report Drunk Drivers – Call 911! Funding for this and other DUI operations are from a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
