CHP and City Police Conducting DUI Checkpoint Friday Evening

The Susanville Area California Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Susanville Police Department, will conduct a driving under the influence and driver license safety checkpoint on August 25th, 2017, at an unannounced location within the Susanville city limits.

“Often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on our local roadways by intoxicated drivers,” says CHP Public Information Officer Kristen Wilburn. “The goal of the CHP is to ensure the safe passage of each and every motorist.”

According to the CHP, sobriety/driver license checkpoints are a proven, effective tool for achieving this goal and is designed to augment existing patrol operations.

Traffic volume permitting, all vehicles will be checked for drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or driving unlicensed.

“Our objective,” explains Wilburn, “is to remove those impaired drivers before they cause life altering collisions and remove unlicensed drivers who should not be behind the wheel.”

Funding for this program was provided from a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
