Announcement from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department:
The Jurupa Valley Station/Norco Office will be conducting a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on Saturday, March 31, at an undisclosed location within the city limits in Norco, between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.
Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.
Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes, court probation and other expenses that can exceed $10,000.
This DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint is an effort to reduce the number of community members injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers, as well as ensuring drivers have a valid driver’s license. A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers.
Funding for this operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
