* Updated: California DUI checkpoint Tonight in Riverside, San Bernardino & Santa Barbara California

California DUI criminal defense attorneys and California drunk driving criminal lawyers at are told about tonight's plans.

Traffic Sgt R. Lawhead explains that the San Bernardino Police Department will be conducting a California DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on Friday, February 13, 2009 from 6:00 PM to 2:00 AM, in the 1500 block of South E Street, in San Bernardino. This California DUI / Drunk Driving program is being conducted in an effort to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes. California DUI / Drunk Driving checkpoints are conducted to identify offenders and get them off the street, as well as to educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving.

All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. This California DUI / Drunk Driving checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies, as well as insuring that drivers have a valid driver’s license with them. A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers.

California DUI / Drunk Driving checkpoints are a proven effective method for achieving these goals. By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the San Bernardino Police Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving.

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. Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs – Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest. The public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 911 if they see a suspected impaired or California DUI / Drunk Driving driver.

Funding for this California DUI / Drunk Driving operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Santa Barbara Police Department will be conducting DUI Checkpoints in the City of Santa Barbara on the following dates and times. Driver’s licenses will be checked at these checkpoints.

Friday February 13, from 8:00 pm to 3:00 am

The Santa Barbara Police Department encourages everyone to drink responsibly, pre-arrange for a ride home, designate a driver and understand that every officer will be diligently looking for the impaired driver. Additionally, DUI enforcement officers will be on patrol throughout the weekend. We would prefer to arrest the DUI driver than to find them in a collision.

Additionally, we encourage everyone to report the suspected impaired driver by calling “911.” Doing so could save the life of a loved one.

Don’t drink and drive!

The Lake Elsinore Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Safety Checkpoint on Friday, February 13, 2009, between the hours of 6:00 pm and midnight.

The Lake Elsinore Police Department has a “Zero Tolerance” approach toward DUI drivers and those driving unlicensed or with a suspended license. These drivers are responsible for a majority of the hit and run collisions that occur within the city.

The checkpoint is funded through a grant by State of California’s Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and will consist of officers from the Lake Elsinore Police Department as well as volunteers, Riverside County Sheriff Posse and Lake Elsinore Police Explorers.
