Upcoming DUI/Driver's License Checkpoint
Submitted By Geneva Bosques, Fremont PD
The Fremont Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on the evening of February 22, 2014 between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.
Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000.
Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the Fremont Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to continue to work together to bring an end to these tragedies.
