The San Diego Police Department warned drivers of a DUI and license checkpoint somewhere in the city limits on Thursday night.
Police will be stopping drivers and checking for alcohol and marijuana impairment between 11 p.m. Thursday and 3 a.m. Friday at a location chosen because of previous drunk driving accidents and arrests.
Checkpoints are regularly announced in advance because of the deterrent effect on people who might drink or smoke marijuana and then drive.
Police estimate that a DUI conviction can cost drivers up to $10,000.
