Berkeley, California (Tuesday, June 18, 2013) - Berkeley, California (June 18, 2013) – The City of Berkeley Police Department (BPD) will be holding a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) checkpoint, Friday, June 21, 2013.


The checkpoint will be held on Alcatraz Avenue near Adeline in south Berkeley.  Participating Officers will begin operations at 8:00 p.m. and staff the checkpoint until approximately 2:00 a.m.  Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 


Driving impaired is extremely dangerous and the consequences are serious and real.  Impaired drivers can kill themselves and others, and the trauma and financial costs of a crash or an arrest for driving while impaired are significant. 


During 2010, more than 10,000 people were killed nationwide in a motor vehicle traffic collision involving impaired drivers.   


BPD is urging the community to report drunk drivers, call 9-1-1.
