DUI checkpoint nets arrests in Vacaville

From page A5 | August 20, 2014 |

VACAVILLE — Vacaville police made multiple arrests Friday at a DUI checkpoint on Mason Street, the city said.

Police screened 1,072 vehicles, arrested two DUI suspects, arrested one suspect for illegal drugs and another for possessing a loaded firearm in public. Twelve drivers were cited or arrested for operating a vehicle without a license or while their license was suspended or revoked.

The department’s Traffic Unit conducted the DUI-driver’s license checkpoint from 6 p.m. to midnight, the press release said. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunken and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public, according to the city.

Results of the checkpoint were released Monday.

The Vacaville Police Department will be conducting another DUI-driver’s license checkpoint over the Labor Day weekend in an attempt to lower deaths and injuries upon our streets and highways, the city said.

A California Office of Traffic Safety grant, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, funded the checkpoint.

    Hmmm. All those cops out there and two DUI arrests. Can't they accomplish that by just driving around. What a waste

    DUI check points are not there to arrest people as much as they are to educate.

    Twelve drivers were cited or arrested for operating a vehicle without a license or while their license was suspended or revoked. Check the Fairfield police logs and see how many hit and run accidents happen each day. Uninsured and unlicensed drivers must be involved.

    Over 33,000 people are killed each year in auto accidents nation wide. Studies have shown that drivers with a suspended or no license are 3.9 to 4.9 times likely to be the at fault driver in a fatal accident than a legal driver. This is a big deal and these drivers should have their cars taken and sold.

    Patrick. He wouldn't feel that it was a waste if he lost a family member to one of these drivers. It changes your world...trust me.
