Sacramento police to hold DUI checkpoint Saturday in South Natomas

Published: Friday, Nov. 22, 2013 - 3:07 pm

Drunk drivers, beware: Sacramento police officers will be on the lookout for you during a sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint Saturday night in South Natomas.

The checkpoint will be on Truxel Road near Bannon Creek Drive starting at 7:30 p.m. and will last five to seven hours, according to police. Officers will be watching for signs of alcohol and drug impairment while also checking licenses. Delays will be short, according to police.

Suspected drunk drivers face jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes and expenses of more than $10,000 – “not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out,” according to a police news release.

The checkpoint will be funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
