Whittier police plan sobriety/driver’s license checkpoint

WHITTIER — Police will screen drivers for sobriety and driver’s licenses this weekend at a checkpoint.
The checkpoint is to take place from 7 p.m. Saturday to 3 a.m. Sunday at an undisclosed location within the city, Whittier police said in a written statement.
“Research shows that crashes involving alcohol drop by an average of 20 percent when well-publicized checkpoints are conducted often enough,” the statement said.
Funding for the event is being provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National highway Traffic Safety Administration.
