DUI, Driver License Checkpoint in Elk Grove Tonight - 'DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze'

April 27, 2018 |  

Elk Grove Police have announced they will conduct and sobriety and drivers license checkpoint.

The checkpoint enforcement will be held on Friday, April 27, at 7 p.m and will run through 3 a.m. on Saturday, April 28. As is practice, the police department does not disclose where the operation will be conducted.

Like many other departments in the state, Elk Grove is emphasizing “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.”  

As noted in the EGPD's press release, "If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI.  Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI."

Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspensions and other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.

Funding for this checkpoint is provided to Elk Grove Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Driver – Call 9-1-1’. For additional information, please contact Sergeant Jason Bolfango at (916) 478-8023.
