Sobriety Checkpoint

ARCHIVED PRESS RELEASE: Published 7-5-2019

The sobriety checkpoint is an effort to get intoxicated drivers off the road in order to reduce injuries and deaths as well as to raise awareness of the dangers caused by alcohol and drug-impaired driving. 

A first conviction for DUI carries imprisonment in jail of not less than 10 days nor more than 1 year, a fine of not nor more than $1,000 as well as any combination of fine, community service or treatment.  Subsequent convictions for DUI may include increased fines and/or confinement in the county jail or the penitentiary. 

Drivers are reminded to not drive after consuming intoxicating substances as well as to remain alert, refrain from using all electronic communication devices, buckle their seatbelts and heed all warning signs and speed limit signs while driving.  It is the goal of the Riverside Traffic Unit to reduce the frequency and severity of collisions occurring within the city of Tulsa, especially those collisions involving intoxicated driving.
