DUI Checkpoint Tonight

Watch out all ye revelers. If you're planning on hitting any Claremont drinking establishments tonight, make sure you're good and sober before you get behind a steering wheel. The Claremont PD will be conducting another sobriety checkpoint tonight from 6pm to 2am, according to the City's online information:

DUI/License Checkpoint on Friday, May 29, 2009

On Friday, May 29, 2009, the Claremont Police Department will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location within the City. The checkpoint will start at 6:00 p.m. and conclude at 2:00 a.m. Drivers will be stopped long enough to ensure they are not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Officers will also ensure that drivers are wearing their seatbelts and possess valid driver licenses.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Let's hope this one doesn't get off the script the way last week's checkpoint on Foothill Blvd. did through no fault of the CPD.
