DUI checkpoint scheduled for tonight
The Palm Springs Police Department will operate a DUI checkpoint tonight at an undisclosed location.
Beginning at 8:30 p.m., and continuing until 2:30 a.m. Saturday, officers will look for signs of alcohol or drug impairment and make sure drivers are carrying valid driver's licenses, Sgt. Paul Abshire said, adding that checkpoints reduce crashes.
People arrested on suspicion of DUI could face jail time, suspension of driver's licenses and higher insurance premiums, he said.
The checkpoint is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.
