The UCSB Police Department will conduct a sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, April 6th 2018, at an undisclosed area on UCSB campus/ Goleta area. It will begin at 7:00 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, Sergeant Rob 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.

We've already made up our signs, and once we identify the location we will be warning people that are coming up on the checkpoint so that they can make a turn and go elsewhere. Four of us will be taking shifts. Last time we did this they confronted us but there was nothing they could do legally!

I personally feel like it might be more suited to do it saturday since that’s the big party day? the parties wind down by sundown on that day so they could easily move their operations from the streets of iv to their chosen checkpoint area. And they need to change the direction of the checkpoint to check people leaving iv, not coming back!

Having a checkpoint on Friday and as many cops as possible out on Saturday maximizes the amount of overtime that officers can get. Law enforcement authorities care far more about keeping their officers fat and happy with taxpayer funded overtime rather than effective enforcement.
