DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint Results

The Eastvale Police Department conducted a DUI / Driver’s License Checkpoint on Friday, March 15, 2019 at Limonite Avenue and Cloverdale Market Place between the hours of 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. resulting in the following:

796 Vehicles Screened

  • 2 Field Sobriety tests conducted
  • 24 Drivers cited/arrested for operating a vehicle unlicensed or while suspended/revoked
  • 2 Citations issued (non-license related)

DUI Checkpoints like this one are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Officers were looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, with officers checking drivers for proper licensing.

Eastvale Police Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.

In 2017, 1,120 people were killed in alcohol-involved crashes on California roads. Last year Eastvale Police Department investigated 14 DUI collisions which have claimed 1 life and resulted in another 11 injuries.

Eastvale Police Department offers these reminders to ensure you have a safe night of fun that doesn’t involve a DUI:

  • Always use a designated sober driver – a friend who is not drinking, ride-share, cab or public transportation – to get home.
  • See someone who is clearly impaired try and drive? Take the keys and help them make other arrangements to find a sober way home.
  • Report drunk drivers – Call 911.
  • Hosting a party? Offer nonalcoholic drinks. Monitor who are drinking and how they are getting home.

Getting home safely is cheap, but getting a DUI is not! Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be upwards of $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.

Funding for this checkpoint is provided to Eastvale Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
