CHP To Conduct Sobriety Checkpoint

Big Bear Valley, CA, July 29, 2011, 8:00am – The Arrowhead office of the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department (SBCSD) will be conducting a joint-agency sobriety checkpoint from 6:00 p.m. to midnight on Saturday, July 30, 2011, within the unincorporated mountain area of San Bernardino County. The CHP’s goal is to ensure the safe passage of each and every motorist.  A sobriety checkpoint is a proven effective tool for achieving this, and is designated to augment existing patrol operations. The CHP continues its efforts to reduce DUI related collisions through the Arrive Alive Campaign.  During the Arrive Alive Campaign checkpoint conducted on Big , within Big Bear City, 273 vehicles were screened, 20 drivers were administered field sobriety tests, and two impaired drivers were arrested.  There was also a drug related arrest.  Drivers who are under the influence can expect to be arrested.  The CHP’s objective is to send a clear message to those considering mixing alcohol and/or drugs with driving.
