Fremont police to hold a DUI checkpoint Saturday night

The Fremont PD released a Nixle announcement this morning:

Fremont Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on the evening of May 4, 2013, at an undisclosed location within the Fremont city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. May 5.

Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000.
