South El Monte DUI Checkpoint nets Seven (7) Arrests

One (1) arrested for DUI while conducting a DUI checkpoint on July 31, 2020. The checkpoint was held on Santa Anita Avenue at Central Avenue from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Six (6) drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license, three (3) vehicles were towed.

Checkpoint locations are based on a history of crashes and DUI arrests. The primary purpose of checkpoints is not to make arrests, but to promote public safety by deterring drivers from driving impaired.

As businesses continue to reopen, including bars and restaurants, impaired driving remains a top traffic safety concern.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will continue to hold DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoints throughout the year.

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