DUI Checkpoints December 9 and 12

DUI Checkpoints in the City of Santa Barbara


The Santa Barbara Police Department will be conducting DUI Checkpoints in the City of Santa Barbara on the following dates and times. Driver’s licenses will be checked at this checkpoint.

- Thursday December 9, 6 pm to 2 am
- Sunday, December 12, 6 pm to 2 am

The Santa Barbara Police Department encourages everyone to drink responsibly, pre-arrange for a ride home, designate a driver and understand that every officer will be diligently looking for the impaired driver. Additionally, DUI enforcement officers will be on patrol throughout the weekend and we would prefer to arrest the DUI driver than to find them in a collision.

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

Additionally, we encourage everyone to report the suspected impaired driver by calling “911.” Doing so could save the life of a loved one. Don’t drink and drive!
