The Menifee Police Department's Traffic Unit will conduct a DUI/Driver's License checkpoint this Friday, April 19, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7 p.m. and 3 a.m, according to a new release.

Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public. Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint, looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes, court probation and other expenses that can exceed $10,000.

This DUI/Driver's License checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies and officers will be checking drivers for proper licensing. A major component of these checkpoints is the deterrent effect it has on those who might drive drunk or drugged impaired and bring about more awareness, encouraging everyone to use sober designated drivers.
