California DUI defense attorneys report the Rocklin Police Department will be conducting a sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, September 19, 2008 at 8 p.m. in the city of Rocklin.
The goal of the checkpoint is to raise the level of public awareness and inform citizens about the efforts being made to identify and apprehend impaired drivers. Sobriety checkpoints tend to reduce the number of drinking drivers on the road and do not necessarily produce a dramatic increase in DUI arrests. A major benefit of the checkpoint is the educational and deterrent influence on the motoring public, according to California DUI defense lawyers.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, per California DUI defense attorneys.
