DUI Checkpoint Planned Tonight in Yucaipa

The DUI/driver's license checkpoint is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 1.

San Bernadino County sheriff's deputies will be checking for drunk drivers in the city of Yucaipa Friday night at a DUI checkpoint.

The checkpoint is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at an undisclosed location, and run until 1:30 a.m. Saturday, according to Deputy Kevin Allen.

"A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers," Allen said in a press release.  "A DUI checkpoint is a proven effective method for achieving this goal. By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the Yucaipa Police Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving."

Funding for the operation was provided via state and federal grants, Allen said.
