San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Holding DUI Checkpoint December 16, 2023

For Immediate Release
December 14, 2023

Contact:  Sergeant Mark Addy, Central Station

Grand Terrace, Calif. – On December 16, 2023, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department will conduct a driving under the influence (DUI) checkpoint from 6pm to 2am near Barton Road and Mount Vernon Avenue, Grand Terrace 

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

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

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department 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.
