DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint Planned for Thursday, February 15, 2024

On Thursday, February 15, 2024, the Inglewood Police Department
will conduct a driving under the influence (DUI) Checkpoint within the city limits between the hours of 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.

DUI checkpoint locations are determined based on data showing incidents of impaired driving-related crashes. The primary purpose of DUI checkpoints is to promote public safety by taking suspected impaired drivers off the road.
“Impaired drivers put others on the road at significant risk,” Chief Mark Fronterotta said, “Any prevention measures that reduce the number of impaired drivers on our roads significantly improve traffic safety.”
The Inglewood Police 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 is 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 TrafficSafety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
