The following is a news release from the Temecula-area CHP office:
The California Highway Patrol will conduct a sobriety/driver license checkpoint on Saturday, July 5th , 2014, in the unincorporated area of Southwest Riverside County.
Motorists approaching the checkpoint will see informational signs advising them that a sobriety checkpoint is ahead. Once diverted into the lane, motorists will be detained only a few moments while an officer explains the purpose of the checkpoint and checks their driver license.
sobriety checkpoints are conducted in accordance with the guidelines for
checkpoint operations outlined in the California Supreme Court decision,
Ingersoll vs. Palmer. Traffic volume permitting, all vehicles will be checked.
The CHP reminds motorists to not drink and drive. If you are going to drink, do it responsibly. Designate a sober driver.
