If a Person Would Drive Without a License, What WOULDN'T They Do?

Is it even legal to set-up a checkpoint to check licenses? Are there no expectations against unreasonable searches anymore?
Deputies and CHP team up to catch drunk and unlicensed drivers.


Two people went to jail Friday night for driving under the influence, caught in a checkpoint set up to get drunk drivers and those without a license off the road.

The checkpoint was set up on Lyons Avenue between Peachland Avenue and Wheeler Road, with one direction handled by the CHP and the other by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s traffic deputies.

According to CHP Officer Michelle Esposito, 1,303 vehicles were screened at the checkpoint, which was held from 7 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday. Along with the two arrests, four vehicles were impounded and nine drivers received citations.
2 arrests, 4 vehicles stolen, 9 citations issued. Pretty successful night out for the Santa Clarita Police Department.
