Menifee Police Schedules DUI Checkpoint for Saturday

The Menifee Police Department Traffic Unit will conduct a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint this Saturday, Dec. 21 at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 8 p.m. and 2 a.m.

According to a Sheriff's Department press release, the deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely.

Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. The officers will also be checking drivers for proper licensing. Motorists will only be delayed momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving.
