Palmdale checkpoint leads to 10 citations

June 29, 2020

 

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department screened 967 vehicles while conducting a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on June 26, 2020.

 

The checkpoint was in the southbound lanes of 10th Street West at Technology Drive, between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. 

 

 10 drivers were cited for operating a vehicle while unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license, 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.
