Inglewood Police arrested 4 individuals on suspicion of DUI while conducting a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on Friday May 17.

The Inglewood Police Department arrested 4 individuals on suspicion of DUI while conducting a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on Friday May 17th, 2019. The checkpoint was held at Crenshaw Boulevard and 116th Street between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.

In addition, 1125 vehicles were screened, 33 drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license, 1 individual was arrested for an outstanding warrant and 17 vehicles towed.

DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Last year the Inglewood Police Department investigated 77 DUI collisions which claimed 2 lives and resulted in another 25 injuries.

Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be approximately $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.

The Inglewood Police Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, can impair and result in a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.

The Inglewood Police Department will be conducting another DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on Friday July 5th, 2019 in our ongoing commitment to take suspected impaired drivers off our streets and highways, ultimately lowering the risk for deaths and injuries.
