SANTA FE SPRINGS — Police are planning a checkpoint Friday to screen for drunken and unlicensed drivers, officials said.
The checkpoint will be held at an undisclosed location within Santa Fe Springs from 7 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday, Whittier police officials said in a written statement.
“The checkpoint and other enforcement efforts are part of the Whittier Police Department’s grant project, the ‘DUI Enforcement and Awareness Program,’” according to the statement.
“Officers will also be checking for those who are driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license as well as those who are unlicensed. Any motorist found driving without a valid license may have their vehicle impounded for 30 days and be issued a citation.”
Funding for the checkpoint is being provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
