DUI Checkpoint – Saturday, August 28

The Tucson Police Department will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint during the evening hours of Saturday, August 28, 2010.

The checkpoint will be conducted within the city limits of Tucson and in an area identified as having a high number of DUI related collisions. Its goal is to reduce the number of collisions that involve impaired drivers, and to reduce the number of injuries and deaths associated with these types of collisions.

By conducting the checkpoint, Tucson Police will be able to increase motorist awareness about the dangers of impaired driving, deter those who may be impaired from driving, and detect and investigate DUI offenses at the checkpoint.
