(KRON) — The Harmony Police Division positioned a DUI checkpoint at Willow Move Highway and Mt. Diablo Road from 7:00 p.m. to three:00 a.m. on September 16.
One individual out of the 489 automobiles contacted was arrested for DUI.
Based on the Harmony PD, checkpoint areas are based mostly on a historical past of crashes and DUI arrests. Harmony police say the checkpoint’s goal is to “promote public security by deterring drivers from driving impaired, to not make arrests.”
Lt. Gregory Rodriguez emphasizes the reasoning for the DUI checkpoint and maintaining the touring public secure.
“The protection of our neighborhood is and all the time might be our mission,” Lt. Rodriguez stated previous to conducting the checkpoint. “We’re searching for impaired drivers as a result of driving beneath the affect is harmful and places others on the highway in danger.”
Harmony Police Division advises that impaired driving shouldn’t be solely from alcohol. Prescription drugs or over-the-counter medicine may cause impaired driving. Following drug instructions and studying warning labels is crucial.
