INCIDENT: Traffic Safety Checkpoint 

DATE/TIME: Friday, September 15, 2023      

Checkpoint: 9pm – 3am

Pomona Calif. – Pomona Police Department arrest two for DUI, while conducting a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on September 15, 2023.  The checkpoint was at Mission Blvd. and Curran Place.  The Checkpoint hours were 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.
In addition, 20 drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license and 8 vehicles were towed. 739 vehicles were screened during this checkpoint.  
DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. In 2022, Pomona Police Department investigated 98 DUI collisions that resulted in two deaths and injuring 46 people.
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.
Pomona 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.
Pomona Police Department will be conducting other DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoints and DUI Saturation Patrols 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.
