Saturday: DUI checkpoint

Police plan post-holiday crackdown

Expect to see a lot of police activity at the intersection of southbound El Camino Real and Edgewood Road in Redwood City on Saturday, Nov. 26.

The Redwood City Police Department will run a DUI checkpoint from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. at that location, courtesy of a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), according to a press release.

"Deaths from drunk and drug-impaired driving are going down in California," said OTS director Christopher J. Murphy in the statement.

"But that still means that hundreds of our friends, family and co-workers are killed each year, along with tens of thousands who are seriously injured. We must all continue to work together to bring an end to these tragedies. If you see a Drunk Driver – Call 9-1-1."

I wish they would stop identifing the location of DUI checkpoints. It seems to defeat the purpose.

Inerested:

the law requires them to identify the location of DUI check points ahead of time.

Menlo Voter is correct. The location must be identified. But don't worry, they will still find stupid people who don't think they are under the influence after only have "2" beers.
