Redlands DUI Checkpoint Results in Several Arrests

Redlands Police arrested six people during the checkpoint held Jan. 10.

Two people were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence during a sobriety/drivers license checkpoint held on Jan. 10, Redlands Police officials announced today.

Officers also arrested a driver in connection with an outstanding warrant and another for allegedly driving on a suspended license, officials said through a news release. Two were arrested for driving without a valid license, officials wrote.

A total of 107 vehicles passed through the checkpoint, which was set up in the northbound lanes of Sixth Street at Stuart Avenue.

On Monday, Jan. 13, Redlands officers held a grant-funded distracted driver detail near Citrus Plaza and issued 18 citations to drivers using cell phones, according to the news release.

The Redlands Police Department wants to remind drivers of these important tips:

  • Even one drink can impair your judgment and increase the risk of getting arrested for driving drunk - or worse, the risk of having a crash while driving.
  • If you will be drinking, do not plan on driving.  Plan ahead; designate a sober driver before the party begins.
  • If you have been drinking, do not drive. Call a taxi, phone a sober friend or family member or use public transportation.
  • Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel.
  • If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someone’s life, and inaction could cost a life.
