“While conducting a DUI checkpoint on November 14, 2020, 1 driver was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Nine drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license, five vehicles were towed, and two other drivers were arrested for other criminal charges. One of these additional arrests was a misdemeanor warrant. The other was for a felony warrant, drug sales and felon in possession of ammunition.
The checkpoint was held at the 400 block of East Lockeford Street from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Checkpoint locations are based on a history of crashes and DUI arrests. The primary purpose of checkpoints is not to make arrests, but to promote public safety by deterring drivers from driving impaired.
As businesses continue to reopen, including bars and restaurants, impaired driving remains a top traffic safety concern.
The Lodi Police Department will hold another DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on December 19th.
Funding for this checkpoint was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.”
