FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 15, 2014
ARCADIA POLICE DEPARTMENT
Upcoming DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint
The Arcadia Police Department will hold a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint in the city limits during
the evening hours of Saturday, March 15th, 2014. The Arcadia Police Department recently received
two grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) for a year-long program aimed at
preventing deaths and injuries on our roadways, through the use of DUI checkpoints,
specialized enforcement efforts and public awareness.
One of the goals of our enforcement activity is to promote public safety and increase awareness of
the dangers associated with drinking and driving. This will be accomplished by providing a highly
visible enforcement and publicity campaign, in order to deter intoxicated drivers from getting behind
the wheel and driving. Through these efforts, we also seek to reduce the number of injuries and
deaths associated with collisions involving intoxicated drivers.
We would like to remind the public of the dangers associated with drinking and driving. Celebrate
St. Patrick’s Day responsibly this year and use a sober designated driver. Any loss of a life is far too
steep a price to pay for a fun night out.
Don’t forget to visit the Arcadia Police Department News & Information Blog or follow us on
Facebook, Twitter or Nixle for other pertinent news and information. Remember, the solution
begins with you!
Funding for this operation is provided from a grant administered by the California Office of Traffic
Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Robert T. Guthrie
Chief of Police
