DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint Planned
The Fullerton Police Department Traffic Bureau will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on Thursday, August 11, 2016, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 8:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.
The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely. DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.
