WHITTIER — Police will check drivers for sobriety and licenses during a checkpoint Friday, officials said.
The checkpoint will be held from 7 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday at an undisclosed location in Whittier, police said in a written statement.
“Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment,” according to the statement. “Officers will also check for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily.”
Funding for the checkpoint is being provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
As always, anyone who spots an intoxicated driver is asked to report it by calling 9-1-1.
