Sobriety and Drivers License Checkpoint Notification
No Excuses: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over
The East Palo Alto Police Department will conduct a sobriety and drivers license checkpoint on Friday, August 15, 2014, at University Avenue and Bay Road. It will begin at approximately 9:30 P.M. and run for approximately 4 hours. Traffic flowing through the checkpoint will be contacted by uniformed officers, who will be checking for alcohol and /or drug impaired drivers. Officers will also check to make sure all drivers have a valid driver’s license.
The purpose of the checkpoint is to promote public safety; increase awareness of the dangers associated with drinking and driving, and serves as a deterrent to potential impaired and unlicensed drivers.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Please direct any inquiries to Sergeant David Carson at (650) 853-3177. Media is encouraged to attend the checkpoint in an effort to spread awareness about the impacts of drinking and driving.
