Citrus Heights police will set up a drunk driving checkpoint Friday in an area where alcohol has played a role in causing crashes.
The DUI checkpoint will be in operation from 7 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. on Madison Avenue, east of San Juan Avenue.
Officers will also be checking to see if drivers have a valid license. Drivers without a valid license could have their vehicles towed.
The checkpoint is funded through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
