This week, police officers in the city of Salinas say that drivers who pass through a DUI checkpoint may be offered a free turkey due to Thanksgiving.
During the holiday, the Safe Teens Empowerment Project in Salinas and the Salinas police department work together to conduct a DUI checkpoint at an undisclosed location. This year marks the eighth annual Turkey & DUI Checkpoint offered by the city and it is said that it will take place just a few days before the holiday occurs.
The giveaway of a Turkey is not only meant to reduce the number of people who are driving while under the influence due to holiday celebrations, but is also meant to provide a meal for those who are in need during Thanksgiving.
All of the turkeys are donated by private individuals, team members from the local police department and local businesses.
