Redlands police traffic officers are planning a DUI/drivers license checkpoint Friday, a city spokesman announced Thursday.
The checkpoint is scheduled 7 p.m. to midnight Aug. 16 in southbound lanes of Cajon Street at Cypress Avenue, Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said.
"The checkpoint is part of a two-week end-of-summer statewide mobilization effort by the California Office of Traffic Safety, reminding Californians to plan ahead during the crackdown and every day by designating a sober driver," Baker said.
Anyone caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes and other expenses that can exceed $10,000, Baker said.
Funding for checkpoint operations in Redlands comes in part from the California Office of Traffic Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
