Both checkpoints will be in operation from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. the next morning at undisclosed locations somewhere in the city limits.

Officers will be stopping drivers briefly to check for alcohol or marijuana impairment as well as proper licensing.

The checkpoints are regularly announced in advance because, according to officer Mark McCullough, “The deterrent effect of high visibility enforcement using both DUI checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols has proven to lower the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug impaired crashes.”
