In a continuing effort to fight drunk driving, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department is planning DUI checkpoints in Santee and Solana Beach over the weekend.
The first checkpoint will be Friday night from 8 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. at an undisclosed location in Santee. The second will be Saturday night from 6:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. somewhere in Solana Beach.
DUI checkpoints are conducted to identify offenders and get them off the streets, as well as to educate the public about the dangers of impaired driving. Deputies also check for expired driver licenses and other violations.
The sheriff’s checkpoints are funded through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.
