Many checkpoints have already been conducted this year and the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station will be conducting several more in the future.  Friday’s checkpoint was located at Newhall Ranch Road and Grandview Drive.

The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station uses DUI Checkpoints along with high visibility DUI enforcement to deter drivers from driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.  DUI Checkpoints and enforcement also bring more awareness to the dangers of driving under the influence.

On Friday night:

[1,093] Vehicles were screened.

[2] Drivers were given field sobriety tests.

[1] Driver was arrested for DUI.

[7] Unlicensed and/or suspended/revoked drivers were sent to court.

[13] Drivers were cited and sent to court for various Vehicle Code violations.

[3] Vehicles were towed, one with a 30-day impound hold.

“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. “If everyone planned ahead for a sober non-drinking designated drivers these numbers could be lowered to Zero.

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.
