Redlands Police arrested said they arrested one driver during a DUI/drivers license checkpoint held Feb. 15.
The unidentified driver was arrested about 10 p.m. by a roving patrol unit attached to the DUI checkpoint after he ran onto a sidewalk near the intersection of Lytle Street and Cypress Avenue that night, according to Carl Baker, spokesman with the police department. The driver is suspected of driving under the influence.
Another driver was also cited for running a stop sign.
On Feb. 14, officers on grant-funded traffic patrol issued 21 citations including eight for stop sign violations, eight for speeding, three for using a cell phone while driving, and one each for expired registration and driving without a license, Baker said.
Patrols targeted the areas of Alabama Street, Industrial Park Drive, Citrus Avenue, Lincoln Street, Grove Street, San Mateo Street, Olive Avenue, Orange Street and the Santa Ana River Wash, Baker said.
Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the Redlands Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to continue to work together to bring an end to these tragedies.
