The San Marcos Sheriff’s Station Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI checkpoint between the hours of 6:30 p.m. Friday and 2:30 a.m. Saturday at an undisclosed location within the city, a Sheriff’s official reported.
The checkpoint is being conducted to deter drivers from getting behind the wheel in a drunken state in order to reduce the number of alcohol-related crashes, according to a San Diego County Sheriff’s report.
Sheriff’s Cpl. Augustin Rosas stressed the financial burdens of driving under the influence and being caught in his report.
“Drivers caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, D.U.I classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000,” Rosas said.
The checkpoint will be conducted by The Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
