REDLANDS CHECKPOINT: 5 Arrested on Suspicion of Driving Under Influence

The checkpoint was staged on westbound Brookside Avenue at Grant Street between 10 a.m. Oct. 26 and 3 a.m. Oct. 27, a city spokesman said.

 

Five people were arrested last weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence during a checkpoint in Redlands, a city spokesman said.

The  DUI/Drivers License checkpoint was staged on westbound Brookside Avenue at Grant Street between 10 a.m. Oct. 26 and 3 a.m. Oct. 27, a city spokesman said.

"A total of 157 vehicles passed through the checkpoint," Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said in an announcement. "Three drivers were also cited for driving without a license."

Redlands police are planning a "targeted speed enforcement operation" throughout the city from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday Nov. 2, Baker said.

They are also planning a "distracted driver enforcement effort" from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday Nov. 5.

"Distractions include dialing, talking, texting or reading texts or emails on a cell phone while driving," Baker said.

Sobriety-license checkpoints and targeted enforcement efforts are funded in part by the California Office of Traffic Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Does Redlands even subscribe to equal opportunity employment practices anymore, a requirement to qualify for federal reimbursement s.a with NHTSA funding? With their current Human Resources Director having been arrested for DWI and listed as a WANTED FUGITIVE up until June of this year (now on probation until mid-2014), there are numerous examples of where the City is no longer an EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER.
