The Lodi Police Department is planning another DUI checkpoint this weekend.
Officers will run a checkpoint on Saturday, Sept. 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. on Sunday. Officers will check drivers for proper liscensing and signs of drug or alcohol impairment, and conducting field sobriety tests if necessary. Faling a test can lead to fines, liscense suspension, jail time and other fees, according to Lodi Police.
“Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have claimed 3 lives and resulted in 52 injury crashes harming 61 of our friends and neighbors,” said Lt. Chris Jacobson.
Funding for this and other DUI checkpoints are provided to Lodi Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
