Police screen over 800 drivers
FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — JAN 2, 2013 —
West Sacramento police staged a “DUI” and driver’s license check Friday night.
The checkpoint was scheduled to run from about 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., with officers screening drivers for symptoms of being under the influence, and officers checking drivers’ licenses.
The checkpoint was announced in advance through the media as a drunk-driving deterrent. But the exact location was not pre-announced.
Unusually, no arrests resulted from this checkpoint, said Lieutenant Tod Sockman of the W.S.P.D. He told the News-Ledger that the checkpoint was set up at Jefferson Blvd. and 15th Street.
