DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint

August 23, 2019

Tonight, Friday, August 23 between 8:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. the following morning, the Torrance Police Department Traffic Division will conduct a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint at an undisclosed location.

The Police Department offers these reminders to ensure a fun night doesn’t get spoiled with a DUI:

-Always use a designated sober driver – a friend who is not drinking, ride-share, cab or public transportation to get home.
-See someone who is clearly impaired try and drive? Take the keys and help them make other arrangements to find a sober way home.
-Report drunk drivers, call 911.
-Hosting a party? Offer nonalcoholic drinks. Monitor who are drinking and how they are getting home.

The impact of a DUI arrest can be upwards of $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and possible jail time. The Torrance Police Department continues to encourage the community to be vigilant and report drunk drivers. “See Something, Say Something”.
