The UCSB Police Department will conduct a sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Saturday, 10-7-17, at an undisclosed 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 for the upcoming 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.
