The Redondo Beach Police Department will conduct a DUI and driver's license checkpoint Friday, according to a news release.
The checkpoint will be located somewhere within the city limits and run from 7 p.m. Friday to 2:30 a.m. Saturday.
The checkpoint is part of California law-enforcement agencies' traditional end-of-summer crackdown on driving under the influence. During the crackdown, more officers will be patrolling the roads in search of motorists driving under the influence, and more departments will host DUI checkpoints.
"The end of summer and Labor Day weekend is traditionally a time to have fun," Redondo Beach Police Chief Joe Leonardi said in the statement. "Don't let it turn into a time of tragedy or a jail visit by driving impaired by alcohol or drugs."
Police will strive to delay people at the checkpoint as little as possible; those caught driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be arrested.
"According to studies by insurance companies, a first-time driving under the influence conviction in California can cost more than $15,000," Leonardi said. "Labor Day should not be the unfortunate reason to make you work more to pay these costs. We will be out looking for those making that unwise and dangerous choice."
Funding for Friday's checkpoint is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
