The San Diego Police announced a DUI and driver’s license checkpoint somewhere in the city limits on Saturday night.
Officers will be stopping drivers between 11 p.m. and 3 am. to check for alcohol or marijuana impairment as well as proper licensing.
The checkpoint location will be based on previous DUI accidents and arrests.
“In recent years, California has seen a disturbing increase in drug-impaired driving crashes,” the department said in announcing the checkpoint. “San Diego supports the new effort from the Office of Traffic Safety that aims to educate all drivers that ‘DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.'”
The checkpoints are regularly announced in advance to deter people from drinking alcohol or smoking marijuana to excess and then driving.
