A sobriety/drivers license checkpoint will be conducted on Saturday, February 9, in the 3200 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, announced the Santa Monica Police Department. SMPD officers will be contacting drivers at that time and place to confirm their sobriety and drivers license status.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is the third of several checkpoints to be conducted over the next year under the grant.
The Santa Monica Police Department reminds drivers if you plan on drinking have a designated driver or call a cab.
