DUI CHECKPOINTS IN THE HIGH DESERT THIS WEEKEND

By: Simone Graham – Editor HDG:  Supervisor Lovingood: To reduce DUI-related collisions resulting in injuries or deaths this Memorial Day Weekend, the Town of Apple Valley, Chino Hills, Hesperia, Highland, Rancho Cucamonga, Victorville, and Yucaipa will deploy additional officers on DUI Saturation Patrols to stop and arrest drivers showing signs of alcohol or drug impairment.

The patrols will be in areas with a history of DUI crashes and arrests. High visibly enforcement operations will be in place all summer.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department wants to remind drivers of the simple things that can save their lives and the lives of their loved ones:

  • California’s Click It Or Ticket campaign is underway so Buckle Up — it is the best defense if you are in a crash.
  • Drive sober! Plan your designated driver and take the keys away from friends or family that are drinking this weekend.
  • Never drive distracted – Put down your phone and Just drive! Avoid other distractions that diverts your full attention to the road.
  • Report drunk drivers – Call 911.
