Two people were arrested for driving under the influence during a targeted DUI saturation patrol on Jan. 12. Two other drivers were cited for driving on a suspended license and a stop sign violation, Baker said. Overtime for the saturation patrol was paid for through a grant from the state Office of Traffic Safety, Baker said.

On Jan. 14, Redlands police conducted a grant-funded traffic enforcement operation in the areas of Cypress Avenue and Roosevelt Street; Citrus Avenue between Church and Dearborn streets; Valley Falls and Foothill Way; Lugonia Avenue at Judson Street and Revelation Way; San Bernardino Avenue at Dearborn Street; and San Mateo Avenue Street at Smiley Elementary School.

A total of 25 violations were cited, including 11 for speeding, 10 for stop sign violations. Other violations included failure to wear a seat belt and expired registration, Baker said.  

Officers will look for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, Baker said. Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing.

And yet all checkpoints are voluntary. No citations should issue if people understood the nature of these administrative activities.
