DUI Check Point

Riverside - A DUI Check Point will be conducted on 12-27-02 in the La Sierra area of the City of Riverside at 8:00 pm. The checkpoint is a joint effort by members of the Avoid The 30 multi agency DUI task force. This task force is made up of 30 law enforcement agencies throughout Riverside County. The funding for this task force is through the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS).

The checkpoint will be hosted by the Riverside Police Department and will include officers from the following agencies:
1) California Highway Patrol
2) Moreno Valley Police Department
3) University of California @ Riverside Police Department
4) Corona Police Department
5) Norco Police Department

The goal of the Avoid The 30 program is the reduction of DUI related collisions through education, information and enforcement. During this holiday season all of the involved agencies and OTS encourage people to drive responsibly, use a designated driver and most importantly do not drink and drive.
