Aurora, Colorado - The Aurora Police Department Traffic Section will be conducting a Stationary Roadside Sobriety Checkpoint on Friday, August 19th, 2016 from 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m.  This is part of our continuing commitment to the statewide effort to combat drunk drivers and reduce alcohol related traffic accidents and fatalities. This checkpoint is part of the DUI Checkpoint Colorado program, which kicks off Memorial Day weekend continuing through Labor Day weekend, and will include more than 100 checkpoints statewide by 11 participating agencies.  This checkpoint will be located on Chambers Rd.

Motorists passing through the checkpoint will be contacted briefly by an officer who will be looking for signs of intoxication and/or impairment in the driver. The checkpoint should cause only minor inconvenience to traffic along the targeted roadway, and highly visible signage will be posted leading into the checkpoint screening area. Drivers entering a checkpoint are asked to pay close attention to the officers directing traffic through the area. Motorists should also roll down their drivers’ side window as they approach the screening area. This allows for better communication between the motorist and the officer, quicker screening and a shorter delay overall.

The APD Traffic Section will also have a dozen or so officers out of the streets conducting DUI Saturation Patrols, specifically looking for impaired drivers, during this operational period.

The checkpoint is funded by an N.H.T.S.A. (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration) grant in partnership with the “Heat is On” campaign and administered by the Colorado Department of Transportation.
