The San Gabriel Police Department’s traffic unit will be conducting a DUI/driver’s license checkpoint this Friday at an undisclosed location within city limits between 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.
While the checkpoint is in operation, officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment along with proper licensing for drivers. Whenever possible, specially trained officers will evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes.
DUI checkpoints like this are placed in locations based on collision statistics and the frequency of DUI arrests. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for officers and the public.
