Riverside County Sheriff's Department Press Release

Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Chad Craig

File # N/A

Moreno Valley, Calif. – On May 24, 2022, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Moreno Valley Station, will conduct a driving under the influence (DUI) Checkpoint, from 9:00 P.M. to 3:00 A.M., at an undisclosed location.

DUI checkpoint locations are determined based on data showing incidents of impaired driving-related crashes. The primary purpose of a DUI checkpoint is to promote public safety by taking suspected impaired drivers off the road.

“Impaired drivers put others on the road at significant risk,” Deputy Jonathan Glass said. “Any prevention measures that reduce the number of impaired drivers on our roads significantly improves traffic safety.”

The Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station reminds the public that impaired driving is not just from alcohol. Some prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs may interfere with driving. While medicinal and recreational marijuana are legal, driving under the influence of marijuana is illegal.

Drivers charged with a first-time DUI face an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties, as well as a suspended license.

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

For media inquiries regarding this incident please contact the Media Information Bureau.
