El Monte police plan sobriety/driver’s license checkpoints

EL MONTE — El Monte police are planning sobriety and driver’s license checkpoints Sunday and Friday.
The checkpoints will be held at undisclosed times and places within the city, El Monte police Officer Eric Johnston said in a written statement.
The purpose of such checkpoints is, “to identify offenders and get them off the street, as well as educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving,” the officer said.
“Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles will be checked,” he added.
Funding for these checkpoints is being provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
