DOWNEY – A driver’s license and DUI checkpoint will be conducted at an undisclosed location in Downey next Friday, June 27, starting at 8 p.m. Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol or drug impairment while also checking for proper licensing.
“Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions in Downey have claimed no lives but resulted in 101 injury crashes harming nearly 150 of our friends and neighbors,” said Sgt. Perry Miller of the Downey Police Department.
Drivers caught driving impaired can expect jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes and other expenses that can exceed $10,000, “not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out,” authorities said.
A state grant is funding the checkpoint.
