My 92503 Heads: KNOW WHAT IT IS

(Courtesy of RiversideCALiving)

Don't be a statistic

In addition to the other DUI checkpoints all over the county, Riverside PD just announced theirs, scheduled for this Friday.

The Riverside Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Drivers
License checkpoint on Friday, August 22, 2008, from 6 p.m. to 12
midnight, in an effort to reduce the number of persons killed and
injured in alcohol involved collisions. DUI checkpoints are conducted
to identify offenders and get them off the street, as well as educate
the public on the dangers of impaired driving.

This year, the City of Riverside has experienced five fatalities as a
result of DUI driving; there were six in 2007. This DUI/Drivers
License checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies as well as
ensuring drivers have a valid driver’s license.

A DUI checkpoint is a visible and effective method for raising
awareness and reducing the incidence of drinking drivers. By
publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the Riverside
Police Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and
driving and encourage sober designated drivers.

Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles at the chosen
location may be checked. Drivers who are under the influence of
alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested. Our objective is to send a
clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle
after consuming alcohol and/or drugs - Drunk Driving, Over the Limit,
Under Arrest.

The public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 911 if
they see a suspected impaired driver
