DUI Checkpoint Scheduled for May 30 in Menifee

The Menifee Police Department Traffic Unit will conduct a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on Friday, May 30 at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 8 p.m. and 2 a.m.

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, police said. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.

According to a news release, this crime led to 802 deaths in 2012. Nationally, the latest data shows nearly 10,000 were killed by an impaired driver.

"The Menifee Police Department will show zero tolerance for suspected drunk or drugged drivers," said Riverside County Sheriff’s Sergeant Strang.
