The Redondo Beach Police Department will conduct a DUI and driver's license checkpoint within city limits.

The Redondo beach Police Department will set up a DUI and driver's license checkpoint within city limits from 7:30 p.m. Saturday until 2 a.m. Sunday.

Police did not state where the checkpoint would be.

The checkpoint is part of the "Avoid the 100" anti-DUI campaign. Law enforcement authorities will continue their winter holiday crackdown on impaired drivers with increased patrols and a series of checkpoints in various Los Angeles County cities through the weekend.

The campaign, which began Dec. 14, includes sobriety checkpoints, routine traffic enforcement and special deployments throughout Los Angeles County, according to the sheriff's department. There were 621 people arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs during the first week of the effort.

Additional patrols will be out Saturday in El Monte, Monrovia, Sierra Madre, El Segundo, Hermosa Beach, Long Beach, San Gabriel and Whittier. In addition to the one in Redondo Beach, there will also be sobriety checkpoints in Azusa, Huntington Park, Inglewood, Signal Hill and Altadena.

On Sunday, extra patrols will be in place in Gardena, Hawthorne, Inglewood, Torrance, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Huntington Park, Long Beach, Signal Hill and Vernon.

The Winter Holiday Anti-DUI crackdown will continue next weekend as well.

DUI checkpoints in America are not only for DUI's anymore. Never forget non free countries once and still have checkpoints.
