The Palm Desert Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Driver's License checkpoint on Friday, August 3, from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m, within the city of Palm Desert.
The exact location of the checkpoint will, for obvious reasons, not be announced.
"A DUI checkpoint is a proven effective method for achieving this goal," said Sgt. Dave Adams of the Palm Desert Police. "By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the Palm Desert Police Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving."
Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested.
The public is encouraged to help keep our roadways safe by calling 911 if they see a suspected impaired driver.
