STOCKTON - The Stockton Police Department will conduct a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on Friday, May 27, from 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., on March Lane west of Hillsboro Way. The department is continuing its efforts at lowering the number of people killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes locally and through the county’s Avoid the 10 DUI Task Force Campaign with this DUI/Drivers License checkpoint. Officers will be checking drivers to identify offenders and get them off the street, as well as heightening awareness to the dangers of impaired driving.
The holidays are a dangerous time of the year and your odds of being involved in an alcohol involved collision can be high.
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. A DUI checkpoint is a proven effective method for achieving this goal.
