San Bernardino Police Department DUI checkpoint on Friday

The San Bernardino Police Department will be conducting a driving under the influence (DUI) checkpoint this Friday, January 20th from 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. at an undisclosed location.

“Impaired drivers put others on the road at significant risk,” Sgt. Jeff Harvey said. “Any prevention measures that reduce the number of impaired drivers on our roads significantly improves traffic safety.”

DUI checkpoint locations are determined based on data showing incidents of impaired driving related crashes. The primary purpose of DUI checkpoints is to promote public safety by taking suspected impaired drivers off the road.

Impaired driving is not just from alcohol either. The police are also reminding people that while medicinal and recreational marijuana are legal, driving under the influence of marijuana is still illegal.

Drivers charged with a first-time DUI face an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties, as well as
a suspended license.
