Personnel from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Risk Management Bureau's Traffic Services Detail will conduct a DUI-driver's license checkpoint at an undisclosed location in the city of Santa Clarita on Friday, April 29, starting at 6 p.m. and lasting until approximately 2 a.m. Saturday, according to a statement from the SCV Sheriff's Station.

 A DUI/DL checkpoint is an effective and proven method in lowering alcohol related traffic deaths. This DUI/DL checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies, as well to insure that drivers possess a valid driver's license.

A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness, as well as educate the public, on the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers.

By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the Sheriff's Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving, which ultimately will save lives.

Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested.

Funding for this operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety administration.
