Tucson police to set up sobriety checkpoint Fri.

Citizen Staff Writer

Tucson police will be operating a sobriety checkpoint this week.

The checkpoint will be set up Friday night at an undisclosed location within the city limits, according to a Tucson Police Department announcement. The announcement did not say at what time or until what time the checkpoint would be operated.

Police typically do not announce checkpoint times and places in advance.

Police hope the checkpoint will increase motorists’ awareness of the dangers of drunken driving and deter motorists who are impaired from driving, the announcement said.

The goal also is to reduce the number of DUI collisions and lower the number of injuries and deaths from such collisions the department said.



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.
