The Miami Police Department will be conducting a multi-agency D.U.I. sobriety checkpoint on Wednesday, July 3, 2013, at the 1000 block of the MacArthur Causeway. In conjunction with the checkpoint, we will be conducting a D.U.I. saturation patrol. The checkpoint will be conducted during the hours of 9:00 PM – 2:00 AM. This checkpoint is part of the 4th of July National Holiday Impaired Driving Enforcement Wave. Law enforcement officers across the nation will be out in force in July cracking down on anyone caught drunk behind the wheel.
As party-goers celebrate the long weekend with friends and family, everyone should heed the Miami Police Department’s warning to keep the partying off the roadways or be ready to face the consequences. Remember, whether you’ve had way too many or just one too many, it’s not worth the risk! Therefore, do not let your 4th of July Independence Celebration end in an arrest or worse, death. The Miami Police Department will show zero tolerance for motorists who violate Florida’s traffic laws. Miami Police officers will be on alert to apprehend motorists who are driving impaired and ticket those who are unbuckled.
This effort is in conjunction with the Florida Sustained D.U.I. Enforcement Program, Let Eliminate Aggressive Driving and the 2013 Buckle Up Florida: Click It or Ticket Campaigns. The goal of the Drunk Driving: Over the Limit, Under Arrest Program is to save lives.
