Police to hold DUI Checkpoints in Stockton, CaliforniaSTOCKTON – California

The Police Department will hold checkpoints tonight and Saturday to catch drunken drivers.

The checkpoint starts at 6 p.m. and continues until 2 a.m. It will be set up in the area of Roosevelt Street and Wilson Way. On Saturday, the checkpoint will be at March Lane and Holiday Drive during the same hours.

Staffing at the checkpoints is paid for by a grant from the state Office of Traffic Safety.

Police earn grant for traffic patrols

STOCKTON – California The Police Department again this year has been awarded a grant for special traffic enforcement, which will be carried out throughout the year.

The $352,000 grant from the state Office of Traffic Safety is to fight alcohol and drug-impaired driving, and to reduce fatal and injury collisions resulting from both.

This year, the grant will fund additional enforcement of motorcycle safety. In 1998, 204 motorcyclists in California were killed in traffic collisions; that number rose to 560 in 2008.

The Stockton Police Department’s efforts will include additional patrols and strenuous enforcement of traffic violations associated with collisions involving motorcycles.

  1. There are tons of road accidents are caused by drunk drivers, that’s why it is good to hear they’re making effort on checkpoint to catch drunken drivers, and it will be better if they’ll do it daily. It might help reduce road accidents and alcohol addiction.

  2. We should never drink and drive, but I still like to know where checkpoints will be in Orange County, San Diego, and LA. I may use Socalcheckpoint (www.twitter.com/socalcheckpoint) to find out where they are.

  3. Sturm Law says:

    I think they want to actually catch the drivers which is why they don’t make the location of the check points public knowledge. I don’t think they should even announce that they are having them.
