Alhambra Police: "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over"

The Alhambra Police Department announced additional DUI checkpoints as part of a late summer national crackdown on driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. 

“Our message is simple and unwavering: if we find you driving impaired, we will arrest you. No exceptions,” said Police Chief Mark Yokoyama. “Even if you beat the odds and manage to walk away from an impaired-driving crash alive, the trauma and financial costs of a crash or an arrest for driving while impaired can still destroy your life."

A DUI and Driver’s License Checkpoint has been scheduled for August 19 starting at 6:30 p.m. in the vicinity of Garfield Avenue and Linda Vista Avenue.

Violators may face jail time, lose their driver’s license, or be sentenced to use ignition interlocks.

"Since twice as many alcohol-impaired accidents occur over the weekend and four times as many occur at night, we will be especially vigilant during these high-risk times when impaired drivers are most likely to be on our roads," Yoyoyama said.

The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over national crackdown campaign is led by NHTSA with the California Avoid DUI Task Force Campaign combining public awareness through publicity and high-visibility enforcement.

For information about Statewide and local Avoid DUI Task Force Campaign Enforcement Schedules and Daily DUI Arrest/Fatal Stats, visit the www.californiaavoid.org.  The program is funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety.
