Alhambra police to conduct DUI and license checkpoint during Labor Day weekend

The Alhambra Police Department will conduct Friday night a DUI and driver's license checkpoint at Fremont Avenue and Orange Street. Officers will target impaired drivers at the intersection starting at 7 p.m. and ending at 3 a.m.

The increased enforcement is part of the national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign, a partnership between local and state agencies and the National Highway Safety Administration to decrease drunk driving collisions during Labor Day weekend.

"The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign will pair increased public awareness with high-visibility enforcement, resulting in fewer drunk drivers on Alhambra streets," said a statement from Alhambra PD.

One person is killed in the United States every 51 minutes by a drunk driver, and during Labor Day weekend the death toll increases to one person every 34 minutes, reports the National Highway Safety AdministrationIn 2012, 147 motorists died in drunk driving collisions during Labor Day weekend. In Alhambra, one person has died in 42 DUI-related collisions and 43 people have been injured in the last three years, according to Lt. Jennifer Wiese. 

"This Labor Day weekend don’t let the festivities turn into fatalities," said Alhambra PD in a statement. "Remember that, aside from the obvious risks of killing yourself or someone else, driving impaired can also lead to serious punitive consequences. A DUI arrest can mean time in jail, loss of your driver’s license, and steep financial expenses; the average DUI can cost up to $10,000."
