Press Release: DUI / Driver’s License Checkpoint
Agency: Jurupa Valley Police
Station Area: Jurupa Valley
Written Date: April 30, 2019 Time: 9:30 PM
Incident Date: May 4, 2019 Time:  
Incident Location: Undisclosed location in the City of Jurupa Valley
Reporting Officer: Sergeant Raemie Wood
File Number(s): Numerous

Details:

The Jurupa Valley Police Department is conducting a DUI / DL Checkpoint Operation on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at an undisclosed location within the city limits of Jurupa Valley between the hours of 8:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m.

Police and Sheriff personnel will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes. 

In recent years, California has seen an increase in drug-impaired driving crashes.  The Jurupa Valley Police Department supports the new effort from the Office of Traffic Safety that aims to educate all 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 use can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.

Remember: It’s not just about you. There are other people on the roads who want to get where they are going safely. Don’t let alcohol and or drug impairment cause you to be a risk to yourself and others on the road. Impaired driving is an act of selfishness. Before you put your keys in the ignition, remind yourself: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. If you feel a buzz, you are in no shape to drive.”

The Jurupa Valley Police Department recommends the following safe alternatives to drinking and driving:

  • First: Always remember to plan ahead. If you plan to drink, plan for a sober driver to take you home. Is it your turn to be the designated driver? Take that role seriously—your friends are relying on you.
  • There are many other ways to ensure a safe ride home besides relying on a friend.  The OTS DDVIP app is now available for free download on iOS and Android devices. The app offers enhanced features, allowing users to search all participating bars and restaurants throughout California. Additionally, the app users can easily order a sober ride from Uber, Lyft or Curb.
  • Have a friend who is about to drink and drive? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get them home safely.
  • Always remember to report drunk drivers - call 911.

This enforcement effort is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,
