RPD Will Conduct DUI Checkpoint On Friday

A sobriety checkpoint will be conducted by Redding Police Friday evening between the hours of 6PM and 11PM. The location is not publicly disclosed, but it will be somewhere within Redding City Limits at a location with a history of DUI crashes and arrests. Officers trained to quickly detect impairment by alcohol or drugs will be at the checkpoint. Drivers are reminded that prescription drugs that warn against operating heavy machinery can also lead to DUIs. The average overall cost of a DUI is $13,500 plus a suspended license.
