The checkpoint will be between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. and staffed by officers trained to spot the signs of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of crashes.
“DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence,” the police department said. “Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.”
Drunk and drug-impaired driving kills 10,000 people annually in the United States.
