The Woodland California Highway Patrol will conduct a sobriety checkpoint Friday night in the unincorporated area of Yolo County.
“DUI is a public safety problem, and sobriety checkpoints are a valuable tool in combatting this major roadway danger,” CHP Officer Bryan Konvalin said in a news release. “Sobriety checkpoints serve three major purposes: deterrence, removal of impaired drivers from the road, and education of the driving public.”
The checkpoint, the location of which will be announced later Friday, will be staffed by officers trained in the detection of alcohol and/or drug-impaired drivers.
Enforcement actions taken at a DUI driver license checkpoint will be limited to driver license violations, DUI, open alcoholic beverage containers, drugs and serious criminal activities. For most mechanical violations, a verbal warning will be issued.
