The Glendora Police Department announced Monday morning a DUI and driver license checkpoint will come to the city for Labor Day weekend.

The checkpoint will be set up at an undisclosed location and run between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m., in an area based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, said Wendy Brewer, senior community service officer with Glendora Police.

Police will check drivers for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, while also checking for proper licensing. Specially-trained officers will evaluate drivers they suspect of drug-impaired driving, which accounts for a growing number of collisions, Brewer said.

Those arrested on suspicion of driving while impaired can expect jail time, fees, fines and other expenses exceeding $10,000.

Funding for the checkpoint has been provided through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
