A Sobriety Checkpoint will be conducted on Sunday, September 25, by the
California Highway Patrol's Dublin Office. The checkpoint will take
place near the City of Livermore from approximately 2p.m. to 10p.m.
Motorists approaching a checkpoint will see informational signs advising
them that a sobriety checkpoint is ahead. Once in the checkpoint lane,
motorists will be delayed only a few moments while an officer explains
the purpose of the checkpoint.
A key objective of the checkpoint is to reduce the number of drinking drivers

with established DUI problems are targeted for checkpoints.
This check point is just one of the traffic safety programs funded by grants
secured by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) from the Office of Traffic Safety.

License checkpoint on Friday, August 5, 2011, from 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
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 Oakland 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.
