Culver City Police Department plan DUI Checkpoint
and Saturation DUI Patrols in August
 
Culver City, CA – The Culver City Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint at an undisclosed location within the city limits along with special DUI Roving Saturation Patrols during the month of August.
 

  • DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint is set for August 18, 2017, from 7:00 PM to 2:00 AM
  • Roving DUI Saturation Patrols will be deploying throughout the month between the hours of 12:00pm and 3:00am, in areas of high frequencies of DUI collisions and/or arrests.
 
Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have claimed 3 lives and resulted in 17 injury crashes harming our friends and neighbors in Culver City.
 
In Californian, this deadly crime led to 802 deaths because someone failed to designate a sober driver.  Alcohol and drug-impaired deaths still make up the largest category of overall vehicle fatalities in 2012 with 29 percent of all deaths caused by a drunk driver.  A DUI checkpoint is a proven effective method to lower these numbers.  Additionally, drivers will be checked to ensure that they have a valid driver’s license.  When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. 
 
The Culver City Police Department reminds everyone that they can assist in preventing this crime from ever occurring.  If you are planning a gathering or celebration with alcohol included, or if you are out on the town, plan ahead and designate a non-drinking sober driver.  A DUI and drug-impaired arrest can costs up to $10,000 or even more, including time in jail, the loss or your drivers license and high insurance rates.
 
These enforcement efforts are funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  Remember, everyone is encouraged to help keep our roadways safe; Report Drunk Drivers – Call 911!
