DUI checkpoint scheduled for Friday

By BREAKING NEWS BLOG

Bakersfield police will be conducting a DUI/Driver's license checkpoint Friday in the greater Bakersfield area.

Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes and other expenses that can exceed $10,000.

In 2010, more than 10,000 people were killed nationally in motor vehicle traffic crashes that involved at least one driver or motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher.

Anyone who sees a suspected drunken driver is asked to call 911.
