Next DUI Checkpoint in Menifee Will Take Place Saturday

The next DUI/Driver's License Checkpoint conducted by the Menifee Police Department Traffic Unit will be this Saturday, March 15, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 8 p.m. and 2 a.m., police said today.

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.

DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.

Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000, police said.
