MARTINEZ, CA – The Contra Costa Area office of the California Highway Patrol will be conducting a “Sobriety Checkpoint” starting on Friday August 28, 2015 at a to be determined location within Unincorporated Contra Costa County.
This safety event will be conducted from 9PM to 3AM. Traffic volume permitting, all vehicles will be checked, and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs can expect to be arrested. In addition, officers will conduct driver’s license checks on motorists stopped at the checkpoint.
The event is part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign. In addition to this press release, we will use our CHP-Contra Costa Facebook and CHP-Contra Costa Twitter pages to provide messaging to encourage the use of occupant restraints, adherence to the speed limit, and sober driving.
Great way to generate revenue guys. Good job!
It is unconstitutional to ask for a driver’s license while performing a DUI checkpoint unless a law has been proven to be broken….smh we as people have a right to travel and be mobile without impedance of our rights…..
Amen to that, these “DUI” checkpoints are no longer used solely as a way to save lives by taking impaired drivers off the road…they are geared more toward impounding vehicles for suspended licences and registration which generates revenue and keeps budgets growing! Check the numbers on DUI arrests vs. unlicensed drivers getting their cars impounded next week, if they even publish those stats…and see for yourself!
Revenue from people that can’t afford to get their license back because of not being able to pay a ticket. Fuck the system. System needs to be updated/ that’s where trump comes to play.lol
