California Highway Patrol officers will be conducting a drunken-driving checkpoint in southern Sacramento County on Saturday night.
Drivers will be stopped not long after officers begin setting up the checkpoint at 8 p.m. at an undisclosed location. The checkpoint is expected to conclude at 2 a.m.
The CHP will be evaluating the sobriety of drivers and handing out literature warning of the dangers of drinking and driving.
If rainy weather makes a checkpoint unsafe for the officers, the units will be assigned to roving DUI patrols.
