Solana Beach driver checkpoint set for Friday night

Press Release

The City of Solana Beach will deploy deputies from the Encinitas Sheriff’s Station on Friday between 7:30 p.m. and 3 a.m. on saturation patrols and DUI/drivers license checkpoints. The checkpoint will be conducted near the 500 block of Lomas Santa Fe Drive.

The Sheriff’s Department is placing 30-day holds on vehicles driven by drivers who are unlicensed or have a suspended license. This can be a costly experience with storage costs up to $1,500. Drivers with a suspended license or who are arrested for driving under the influence can incur legal costs amounting to several thousand dollars as well as paying for their stored vehicle.

The California Office of Traffic Safety, along with local law enforcement agencies, encourage citizens to “Report Drunk Drivers, call 9-1-1″ if they see a drunk driver on the road. Provide law enforcement with the exact location, vehicle make and model and license plate. One call could save a life.

Traffic Sergeant Mark O’Connor encourages motorists who elect to drink alcoholic beverages during this period, to designate a sober driver or to call a taxi.

This year, the State of California Office of Traffic Safety and the San Diego Sheriff’s Department remind drivers: Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest.

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