In particular, they will be looking for drivers under the influence and people without a driver’s license. There will be an undisclosed checkpoint set up this Friday from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Officials say a DUI arrest can lead up to fees and fines of more than $13,000.

Law enforcement says it’s always a good idea to have a designated sober driver. If you see someone impaired, take action and make sure they don’t get behind the wheel, report drunk drivers and if you are hosting a party make sure you are monitoring drinking and how people are getting home.

The checkpoint is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
