The Yucca Valley Police Department conducted a DUI/driver’s license checkpoint Sunday night in the area of Highway 62 and Fox Trail between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent. During the checkpoint, 744 vehicles were screened. One driver was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. Four drivers were cited for driving with a suspended/revoked license, and one of them was cited for false registration tabs. Six drivers were cited for driving while unlicensed, and one of them was also arrested on a warrant for driving while unlicensed. One driver was cited for driving without a license in possession. The Yucca Valley Police Department will be conducting additional DUI/driver’s license checkpoints or DUI saturation patrols in the near future to lowering deaths and injuries on our local streets and highways. This checkpoint was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety. Remember, report drunk drivers. Call 911.
