DUI/ Driver’s License Checkpoint Results

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department-Moreno Valley Station conducted a DUI / Driver’s License Checkpoint on Friday, June 21, 2019 at Sunnymead Boulevard and Frederick Street between the hours of 10: 00 p.m. to 2: 00 a.m. resulting in the following:

1,328 Vehicles Screened

  • 3 Field Sobriety tests conducted
  • 3 DUI Arrest
  • 47 Drivers cited/arrested for operating a vehicle unlicensed or while suspended/revoked

DUI Checkpoint like this one is placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Deputies were looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, with deputies checking drivers for proper licensing.

In 2017, 1,120 people were killed in alcohol-involved crashes on California roads. Last year Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station investigated 75 DUI collisions which have claimed 2 life and resulted in another 105 injuries.

Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station 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.

Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station offers these tips 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 is drinking and how they are getting home.

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 these enforcement efforts are provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
