DENVER — Police will run a major DUI checkpoint Friday  at a key intersection in Lakewood, the Lakewood Police Department announced.

The checkpoint will be in the area of South Kipling Parkway and West Alameda Avenue, the site of numerous DUI arrests and accidents in recent years, police said.

“We want people to drive responsibly,” LPD chief Kevin Paletta said. “We are committed to serving the public and to making our roadways safer.”

Police noted that the checkpoint would be in place during “late night hours,” which could cover both Friday night and the early morning hours when 4th of July revelers are heading home.

The checkpoint is a part of the statewide “100 Days of Heat” anti-DUI campaign.
