Walnut Creek police will have a DUI/driver's license checkpoint at 9 p.m. Friday on Lawrence Way.
In this effort, the department is joining nearly 10,000 other law enforcement agencies around the nation in cracking down on impaired driving.
“All too often, innocent, law-abiding people suffer tragic consequences due to this careless disregard for human life," said Walnut Creek Police Chief Joel Bryden. "Because we’re committed to ending impaired driving, we’re intensifying enforcement during the crackdown. Since twice as many alcohol-impaired accidents occur over the weekend and four times as many occur at night, we will be especially vigilant during these high-risk times when impaired drivers are most likely to be on our roads.”
