Deputies in Poway will hold a DUI checkpoint this weekend, it was announced Monday.
The checkpoint will be held from 8:30 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday.
The checkpoint will consist of DUI trained deputies who will be evaluating drivers’ abilities to safely operate motor vehicles to see if they have a valid driver’s license.
Officials said the primary intent of this checkpoint is to educate the public of the dangers associated with drinking and driving.
The checkpoint is funded by a grant through the California Office of Traffic Safety. The Office of Traffic Safety and local law enforcement urge drivers to “Report Drunk Drivers. Call 911.”
