Redding Police Will Conduct DUI Checkpoint On Independence Day

Law enforcement agencies will have increased enforcement focused on impaired driving during the 4th of July holiday. The CHP has designated a maximum enforcement period through Sunday night. On July 4th from 6PM to 11PM, the Redding Police Department will be holding a DUI & driver’s license checkpoint at an undisclosed location. According to preliminary data from the California Highway Patrol, seven people were killed and 73 injured in alcohol-related crashes statewide during the Independence Day holiday last year. Every deadly crash involved a driver who had been drinking. If you are headed to holiday parties, designate a sober driver before heading out for the evening. If you are hosting a party, offer non-alcoholic drinks for designated sober drivers and monitor who is drinking. If guests are drinking, check how they are getting home. Offer to let them stay the night if a sober driver is not available to take them home.
