CHP to conduct driving checkpoint

By From page A4 | May 23, 2014

FAIRFIELD — The California Highway Patrol will conduct a sobriety and driver license checkpoint at an undisclosed Fairfield location on Saturday night.

Traffic volume permitting, the California Highway Patrol will check all vehicles and arrest drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Officers will give citations to motorists without a valid driver license and possibly impound the vehicle, an agency press release said.

The checkpoint will take place between 8:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 a.m. Sunday. A grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety is providing funding.
