1 Arrested and 24 cited at San Rafael Police DUI Checkpoint

San Rafael, CA – On Friday, December 16, 2022, one person was arrested for driving under the influence, one driver was cited for driving with a suspended driving privilege, and 23 additional drivers were issued citations for driving while unlicensed at a DUI checkpoint held in San Rafael.

The DUI checkpoint was held at Lincoln Avenue and Grand Avenue from 6:00 PM to 11:30 PM.

SRPD Officers screened 501 cars during the five-and-a-half hour-long DUI and driver’s license checkpoint.  33 of those vehicles were stopped to either determine if they had too much to drink or to determine whether they were properly licensed drivers.

DUI checkpoint locations are determined based on reported incidents of impaired driving-related crashes. The primary purpose of DUI checkpoints is to promote public safety by taking suspected impaired drivers off roads.

Additional DUI checkpoints will be held in the coming year.

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