NATURE: Roadside Sobriety Checkpoint- Friday July 21st, 2017

Aurora, Colorado- The Aurora Police Department will be conducting a Stationary Roadside Sobriety Checkpoint on Friday July 21st, 2017 from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. This is part of our continuing commitment to the statewide effort to combat impaired drivers and reduce alcohol and drug related traffic collisions and fatalities. This checkpoint is part of the DUI Checkpoint Colorado program, which kicks off Memorial Day weekend continuing through Labor Day weekend. The checkpoint will be in the area of E. Hampden Ave. and S. Tower 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 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. 

Please contact Traffic Officer Kevin Deichsel with any questions.
