Somewhere in Santa Clarita this Friday, a DUI checkpoint will be set up to catch drivers who have had too much to drink.
The checkpoints are designed to be a surprise, hence why the exact location has not been released.
If drivers happen to come upon a checkpoint, they likely won’t realize it until its too late. Cones will begin to narrow lanes and block in cars well before any signs of police are visible. This is to keep the offenders from exiting the area to avoid arrest.
Most people will be asked a few questions, and be allowed to continue, but the ones that show signs of intoxication will tested.
Drinking and driving is never a good choice, and this Friday, the Sheriff’s Department aims to make that very clear.
