DUI Checkpoint Nets 4 Arrests

Moreno Valley, Calif. – The Moreno Valley Police Department arrested four people for driving under the influence while conducting a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on May 24, 2019. The checkpoint was on Sunnymead Blvd. west of Perris Blvd. between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m.

In addition, 15 drivers were cited/arrested for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license, 6 traffic citations were issued and 12 vehicles towed.

DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Last year the Moreno Valley Police Department investigated 75 DUI collisions that killed 2 people and injured 105 others.

Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be approximately $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.

The Moreno Valley Police Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, can impair and result in a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.

The Moreno Valley Police Department will be conducting another DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint and/or DUI Saturation Patrol on June 7, 2019 in our ongoing commitment to take suspected impaired drivers off our streets and highways, ultimately lowering the risk for deaths and injuries.

Funding for this checkpoint was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
