The Hollister-Gilroy office of the California Highway Patrol will conduct a sobriety/driver license checkpoint on Saturday, July 14 within the south Santa Clara County area.

CHP officers who are trained in the detection of alcohol and drug impaired drivers will staff the sobriety checkpoint.  

A CHP Drug Recognition Expert, certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, will be on site to provide assessments of any drivers suspected of drug use. 

Officers will have use of preliminary alcohol screening devices to accurately analyze breath samples.

Drivers passing through the checkpoint will be checked for impairment and arrested if determined to be under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.  

The checkpoint will send a clear message to the community that the CHP will not tolerate impaired driving and will promote awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence, according to a press release from the CHP.  

The sobriety checkpoint is made possible through a grant known as Impaired Driver Enforcement and Apprehension.

Funding for this grant is made possible through the California Office of Traffic Safety.
