The San Jose Police Department will conduct a sobriety and driver license checkpoint in the City of San Jose on Friday, August 13, 2010 from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.
In an effort to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol-related crashes, sobriety checkpoints are conducted to identify offenders and get them off the street, as well as to educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving.

All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. This sobriety / driver license checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies, as well as ensuring motorists have a valid driver license. A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers.
A sobriety checkpoint is a proven and effective method for achieving this goal. By publicizing these enforcement and educational efforts, the San Jose Police Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving.

Traffic volume- and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested. Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs: Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest.
The public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 9-1-1 if they observe a suspected impaired driver.

Funding for this operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
