California DUI checkpoints beginning Early this weekend

California DUI lawyers learned the Downey Police Department will be conducting DUI checkpoints this Thursday from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. at various locations within the city.

“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,” Sgt. Dean Milligan of the Downey Police Department said in a California DUI press release.

A California DUI checkpoint earlier this year at Firestone Boulevard and La Reina Avenue netted five California DUI / drunk driving arrests.

The California DUI checkpoints are being funded through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
