San Jose - San Jose Police Department has announced that they will be conducting field sobriety tests on Friday, February 15, 2013.
In a press release that was posted online, the Traffic Unit will be setting up checkpoints at random locations within the city limits. They will be tasked with conducting field sobriety tests between the hours of 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.
"DUI Checkpoints have been an essential part of the phenomenal reduction in DUI deaths that we witnessed since 2006 in California," said Christopher J. Murphy, Director of the Office of Traffic Safety.
Officers will be examining drivers for signs of alcohol and drug impairment. Drivers caught driving intoxicated will be arrested and have their license suspended while having to face fines and fees that can exceed $10,000.
DUI checkpoints have helped reduce the number of alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving alcohol drop when well-publicized checkpoints are conducted often.
