West Sacramento police get funding for more drivers’ sobriety checkpoints
FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — OCT 9, 2013 —
West Sacramento police announced this week they have received a new traffic safety grant to fight drunk driving.
The $19,750 from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, through the California Office of Traffic Safety, will support the department’s occasional sobriety checkpoints, reported Lieutenant David Delaini.
“The grant activities will specifically target impaired driving offenders as well as educating the public on the dangers of impaired driving through the use of DUI/driver’s license checkpoints,” he said in a press statement. “When possible, specially-trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving.”
