The Beverly Hills Police Department’s Traffic Bureau will hold a sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, Sept. 9, in the area of North Santa Monica Boulevard and Crescent Drive. The checkpoint will be operational from approximately 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. the following morning. All traffic will pass through the checkpoint and motorists will be stopped and contacted by uniformed officers checking for alcohol and drug-impairment. Officers will also check to make sure all motorists who are contacted have valid driver’s licenses.
The BHPD supports the “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze” campaign by the California Office of Traffic Safety that aims to educate drivers about the dangers of taking prescription drugs and driving. Marijuana can cause impairment, especially in combination with alcohol and other drugs, and can result in a DUI. The purpose of the DUI checkpoint is to promote public safety, increase awareness about impaired driving and to serve as a deterrent. For information, call the BHPD at (310)285-2196.
