Retenes del fin de semana del Día Memorial / Memorial Day weekend checkpoints (25-28/may/2
by Checkpoint response ( noretenes [at] gmail.com )
Friday May 25th, 2012 3:50 AM
¡Póngase abusado raza! Este fin de semana memorial va a haber un montón de retenes. A la gran cantidad de retenes también se suman varias patrullas de saturación, las cuales no constan esta lista. Cuidado también que la policía siempre realiza más retenes de los que se anuncian por la prensa. Si Ud. Mira algún retén en su área, favor de alertar a su comunidad al igual que la línea de retenes al 909-992-0440. Otra cosita: muchas de las agencias, al parecer, no están respetando la ley AB 353, la cual permite que un conductor cuyo único delito es manejar sin licencia (a excepción de que la licencia sea suspendida o revocada) llame a un conductor con licencia para recoger el carro antes del fin del retén. Este es su derecho, ¡pero lo hay que reclamar! Si no respetan este derecho suyo, les pedimos que marquen al mentado número para reportar el abuso. Con cuidado, ¡y que siga la resistencia!

Get wise, people! This Memorial Day weekend there will be numerous police checkpoints. In addition, there will be many saturation patrols, which are not listed here. Please be aware that the police always conduct more checkpoints than they announce through the media. If you see a checkpoint in your area, please alert your community as well as the checkpoint hotline at 909-992-0440. One more thing: it appears that many agencies are not respecting the law AB 353, which permits a driver whose only infraction is driving without a license (with the exception of suspended or revoked licenses) to call a licensed driver to retrieve the car prior to the conclusion of the checkpoint. This is your right, might you must demand that it be respected! If they do not honor your rights, we ask that you call the aforementioned number to report the abuse. Be careful, and keep up the resistance!
