SDPD arrested 13 people during a DUI checkpoint in the 4200 block of Mission Bay Drive.
Between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. Friday night 744 drivers were screened by officers, and 14 drivers were detained to evaluate their sobriety further.
“The message is simple, ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’. Drinking alcohol and driving do not mix. If you plan to consume alcohol, you should also plan not to get behind the wheel of a vehicle or ride a motorcycle,” said Officer Mark McCullough.
The checkpoint was made possible by a California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) ‘STEP Grant.’
The national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign is led by OTS and NHTSA with the California Avoid DUI Task Force Campaign. It combines high-visibility enforcement and heightened public awareness through publicity.
