DUI/Driver License Checkpoint Set For Thanksgiving Weekend

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, the Bakersfield Police Department said it will conduct a DUI / Driver License Checkpoint at an undisclosed location in the City of Bakersfield.

This DUI / Driver License Checkpoint is in an effort to reduce the number of persons injured or killed each year in DUI related collisions. A major component of this enforcement event is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 911 if they see a suspected impaired driver.
