A driving under the influence and driver’s license checkpoint is scheduled for July 12 from 7:30 p.m. until 3:30 a.m. at an undisclosed location in Malibu.
Officers of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station will check drivers for proper licensing and any signs of impaired driving due to drugs or alcohol.
Twenty-five drivers were arrested during the last Malibu DUI checkpoint on June 28 at Carbon Canyon Road and Pacific Coast Highway.
“DUI checkpoints have been an essential part of the phenomenal reduction in DUI deaths that we witnessed since 2006 in California,” Office of Traffic Safety Director Christopher J. Murphy said. “But since the tragedy of DUI accounts for nearly one-third of traffic fatalities, Malibu needs the high visibility enforcement and public awareness that checkpoints provide.”
The DUI checkpoint is being funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety to the City of Malibu.
