San Diego Police will be stopping drivers at a checkpoint on Friday night in their continuing crackdown on dangerous use of alcohol and marijuana.
The department said the checkpoint will take place between 11 p.m. Friday and 3 a.m. Saturday at an undisclosed location somewhere in the city limits where there have been previous DUI arrests and accidents. Drivers will be stopped momentarily and checked for impairment and proper licensing.
Checkpoints and saturation patrols are routinely announced in advanced because of the deterrent effect on people who might drink or smoke to excess and then drive.
Police are calling attention to the danger of excessive marijuana use now that the drug is legal under the new statewide “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze” campaign.
