The UCSB Police Department will conduct a sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, March 3, at an undisclosed area on UCSB campus / Goleta area. It will begin at 7 p.m. and run for approximately 8 hours. Traffic flow will be contacted by uniformed officers, who will be checking for alcohol / drug-impaired drivers. Officers will also check to make sure all drivers have a valid driver’s license.
The purpose of the checkpoint is to promote public safety; increase awareness of the dangers associated with drinking and driving; and to serve as a deterrent to potential impaired and unlicensed drivers during the UCSB academic school year.
