The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, San Marcos Station will conduct a DUI and driver’s license checkpoint next weekend on March 18.
The intent is to educate the public about the dangers of drinking and driving and will hopefully be a deterrent to impaired driving.
Officers will focus on detaining drivers under the influence and those without a license or with a suspended one.
DUI and Drug Recognition Expert trained deputies will evaluate drivers’ abilities to drive safely.
The checkpoint is funded by a grant through the California Office of Traffic Safety.
The checkpoint will operate between 7:30 p.m. Friday to 2:30 am. Saturday.
