EL CENTRO – The El Centro Office of the California Highway Patrol (CHP) will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Friday, April 5, 2013 somewhere within the unincorporated area of Imperial County.
Â The goal of the CHP is to ensure the safe passage of each and every motorist by targeting roads where there is a high frequency of intoxicated drivers. Â A sobriety checkpoint is a proven effective tool for achieving this goal and is designed to augment existing patrol operations. Â By publicizing our efforts we believe that we can deter motorists from being intoxicated while driving a motor vehicle.Â
Traffic volume permitting, all vehicles will be checked for drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Our objective is to send a clear message to those individuals that consider mixing alcohol or drugs “The CHP will be keeping a close eye out for you.”Â
