Sobriety and Driver License Checkpoint Notification

The City of Sacramento Police Department plans to host a Sobriety and License Checkpoint in Sacramento on Del Paso Boulevard.  The checkpoint will help to save lives and increase public safety.  This type of event reduces the number of preventable deaths involving motor vehicles or motorcycles with at least one motorist having a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or higher.  In 2011, nearly 10,000 individuals were killed in the United States by a drunk driver.  In California, 774 deaths were reported due to alcohol related traffic incidents.

Sobriety checkpoints help to significantly reduce the number of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) related deaths.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that checkpoints provide the most effective documented result of any DUI enforcement strategies and help to produce cost savings.
