The Sacramento Police Department will conduct a sobriety and driver's license checkpoint tonight at 16th and C streets.
Beginning at 8 p.m. and continuing for five to seven hours, motorists traveling through the intersection will be contacted by uniformed officers, who will check for alcohol and/or drug-impaired drivers. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, according to a Police Department news release.
Officers also will check to make sure all drivers have a valid driver's license.
Officials warn that anyone caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes and other expenses that can exceed $10,000.
