The checkpoint will be manned by sheriff’s deputies out of the Rancho Cucamonga station. They will be checking for intoxicated drivers as well as people driving without valid licenses.
Usually people caught driving without drivers licenses have their vehicles towed away and drunk drivers are arrested at these types of checkpoints. So if you are planning on being in the Rancho area Friday night or early Saturday morning be sure to have all of your documentation such as license, registration and proof of auto insurance coverage in your vehicle. If you plan on having some drinks that night do not drive your car. It is always a good idea to designate a driver if you have been consuming alcohol.
If you are cited for driving under the influence you can be arrested and taken to jail. It can end up costing you a lot of money as well and your license will more than likely be suspended. You may be required to attain an sr22 insurance policy to get it back. Many times offenders are also required to take DUI classes that teach them to be responsible drivers. All of these consequences can be avoided as it is much wiser to hand your keys over to a friend or relative who has not been drinking rather than getting behind the wheel yourself.
Hundreds of people are injured or even killed in drunk driving accidents every year in California. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department has done a fine job in keeping the streets safe from drunk drivers by conducting successful sobriety checkpoints in the past.
