Chino Checkpoint arrests 4 DUI drivers
Special to the Review

The Tri-City DUI Taskforce held a DUI checkpoint in the 1300 block of South Highway 89 in Chino Valley on Saturday, Aug. 13, from 8 p.m. until about 1 a.m.

Officers from the Chino Valley, Cottonwood, Prescott, and Prescott Valley police departments and deputies from the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office stopped both northbound and southbound traffic on the highway.

Officers contacted more than 968 drivers, which resulted in three DUI arrests including one felony Aggravated DUI.

The average blood alcohol content (BAC) for the impaired drivers was .183 percent.

In addition to the DUI arrests, officers observed 122 equipment violations, 52 seatbelt violations, two open container violations, and cited four drivers for child restraint violations.

Fifty-four drivers identified themselves as a Sober Designated Driver.

The DUI checkpoint was made possible by grant funds provided by the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS).

The member agencies of the Tri-City DUI Taskforce and GOHS would like to remind drivers not to drive impaired and to use a designated driver or taxi.

The Tri-City DUI Taskforce said they are pleased to see a decrease in the number of DUI drivers being arrested at the checkpoints while the use of a Sober Designated Driver continues to rise.

The Taskforce also said they appreciated the help of Director Alberto C. Gutier from the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety, Yavapai County MADD, Chino Valley Ace Hardware, Chino Valley Rentals, and Best Pick Disposal for their continued assistance and contributions to combating impaired drivers in our community.
