Tracy police plan DUI checkpoint Saturday

TRACY - In a press release Thursday, the Tracy Police Department announced it will conduct a Sobriety / Driver's License checkpoint in the city on Saturday, July 2, between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m.  The emphasis of the checkpoint will be to detect drunk drivers. Officers will also be checking to see that drivers are properly licensed.  Unlicensed drivers may have their vehicles towed from the checkpoint. 

The checkpoint is just one part of the effort to continue the Tracy Police Department’s commitment to traffic safety by reducing the number of people killed and injured in alcohol-involved collisions. 

Public Affairs Sgt. Tony Sheneman said, “People arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol face fines and penalties of up to $10,000 and the loss of driving privileges for up to a year. The Tracy Police Department will always aggressively work to make our streets safe by using different strategies to catch those irresponsible enough to place themselves and others at risk by driving under the influence.”

Funding for this Avoid the 10 program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
