DUI checkpoints in Gilroy

Gilroy, CA - Gilroy Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Driver's License Checkpoint on 08/22/2014, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.

 

The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving alcohol drop by an average of 20 percent when well-publicized checkpoints are conducted often enough.

 

Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes, and other expenses that can exceed $10,000.
