The UCSB Police Department will conduct a sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, January 18th 2019, at an undisclosed area on UCSB campus/ Goleta area. It will begin at 6:00 p.m. and run for approximately 8 hours. Traffic flow will be contacted by uniformed officers, who will be checking for alcohol/drug-impaired drivers. Officers will also check to make sure all drivers have a valid driver’s license.

The purpose of the checkpoint is to promote public safety; increase awareness of the dangers associated with drinking and driving; and to serve as a deterrent to potential impaired and unlicensed drivers during the UCSB academic school year.

Please direct any inquires to Public Information Officer, Lieutenant Robert Romero, at (805) 893-4063. Media is encouraged to attend the checkpoint in an effort to spread awareness about the impacts of drinking and driving.

Maybe people drinking will stay off the streets since they know there will be a checkpoint and a possibility of being busted.
