The Cypress Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on Saturday, February 28, 2009, from 8:00 p.m., to 3:00 a.m., on Lincoln W/O Valley View. In an effort to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes, 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.
All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. This DUI/Drivers License checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies, as well as insuring drivers have a valid driver’s license. A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers.
A DUI checkpoint is a proven effective method for achieving this goal. By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the Cypress Police Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving.
Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and 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.
Funding for this operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Nine people were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol during a sobriety checkpoint and additional “saturation patrol” Friday night. Another man was arrested after fleeing the checkpoint and crashing his car. (Separate release issued Monday, Feb. 23.)
Redlands Police conducted the sobriety checkpoint from 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 20, through 3 a.m. Saturday on Orange Street south of San Bernardino Avenue.
One driver attempted to turn around as she approached the marked checkpoint. She was stopped and determined to be under the influence of alcohol.
Five drivers were arrested for driving under the influence during a focused weekend saturation patrol by Sgt. Travis Martinez.
Saturation patrols are run concurrently with sobriety checkpoints, increasing the department’s efforts to stop drivers on the road while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Both the sobriety checkpoint and the saturation patrols are paid for through grant funding from the California Office of Traffic Safety.
“Driving under the influence is a continuing problem and a threat to everyone,” said Redlands Police Commander Tom Fitzmaurice. “We request that the public contact us any time they see a drunken driver on the road or getting ready to drive. This enforcement has a direct effect on lowering injury and fatal collisions.”
