Lodi DUI checkpoint planned for this weekend

A DUI and Driver's License checkpoint will be in an undisclosed Lodi location June 15 between 6:30 p.m. and 2:30 a.m.

The Lodi Police Department reported they will check for signs of alcohol impairment, drug impairment and proper licensing. Drivers who appear to be under the influence will be subjected to a field sobriety test.

Officers warned that if people fail their field sobriety tests, they should be prepared to face jail, vehicle storage fees, license suspensions, insurance rate increases, fines, fees and DUI classes. The total cost could exceed $10,000.

"Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have claimed three lives and resulted in 52 injury crashes harming 61 of our friends and neighbors," said Sgt. Chris Jacobson in a news release.

The police department funds these checkpoints with grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
