The California Highway Patrol will conduct a sobriety checkpoint and driver’s license inspection on Thursday, December 31, 2009 in the Woodcrest area.

The sobriety checkpoint will be staffed by California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers who are trained in the detection of alcohol and/or drug impaired drivers.

The officers will be equipped with state of the art, hand held breath testing devices which provide an accurate measure of blood alcohol concentrations of drivers suspected of being under the influence.

Each year, members of our community are needlessly maimed and killed on our roads.

Our goal is to ensure the safe passage of each and every motorist by targeting roads where there is a high frequency of drunk driving. A sobriety checkpoint is an effective tool for achieving this goal and is designed to augment the existing patrol operations. By publicizing our efforts we believe that we can deter motorists from drinking and driving.
