The Chino Police Department’s Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on Friday, April 27, 2012, in the area of Central Avenue between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving success in deterring drivers who are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, as well as providing the greatest safety for officers and the public.
Drivers caught driving impaired can expect time in jail, license suspension, insurance rate increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes, court probation and other expenses that can exceed $10,000.
All too often, members of the community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. “Over the course of the past year, DUI collisions have claimed one life and resulted in 57 accidents injuring 30 of our friends and neighbors in Chino,” said Sgt. Brian Cauble.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent. Funding for this operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
