2 individuals arrested on suspicion of DUI, while conducting a DUI/Driver’s Licence Checkpoint.

The Inglewood Police Department arrested 2 individuals on suspicion of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of Alcohol, while conducting a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on Friday October 18, 2019. The checkpoint was held at Florence Avenue and Market Street between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.
 
In addition, 750 vehicles were screened, 34 drivers were cited for operating a vehicle unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license and 10 vehicles were towed.
 
DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Last year the Inglewood Police Department investigated 109 DUI collisions which claimed 1 life and resulted in another 29 injuries.
 
Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be approximately $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.
 
The Inglewood Police Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, can impair and result in a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.
 
The Inglewood Police Department will be conducting another DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on Friday November 15, 2019 in our ongoing commitment to take suspected impaired drivers off our streets and highways, ultimately lowering the risk for deaths and injuries.
 
Funding for this checkpoint was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
