The West Sacramento Police Department announced today it will conduct a sobriety checkpoint and driver’s license check from Saturday at 7 p.m. until 3 a.m. The department typically does not announce the precise location of the checkpoint in advance.
“The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes,” said a press statement from Lieutenant Tod Sockman of the West Sacramento Police Department. “Research shows that crashes involving alcohol drop by an average of 20 percent when well-publicized checkpoints are conducted often enough.”
