PASADENA, CA – The Pasadena Police Department will conduct a DUI Checkpoint enforcement program on Friday, December 10th , 2010. The hours of operation will be between 7:00 pm – 3:00 am. DUI programs are a useful and effective tool for achieving the Pasadena Police Department’s goal of detecting and removing impaired drivers from our streets.
The Pasadena Police Department is committed to making the roadways safe for the driving public during the holiday season. Members from the Pasadena Police Department’s Traffic Section will be conducting this program for the purpose of looking for and arresting impaired/intoxicated drivers.
“Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs,” Pasadena police spokewoman Janet Pope Givens said. “The public is encouraged to help keep our roadways safe and to ‘Report Impaired Drivers by calling 911’ whenever you see a suspected impaired driver.”
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
