The San Luis Obispo Police Department plans to conduct a checkpoint for impaired drivers on an undisclosed road in the city from 7 p.m. Thursday to 3 a.m. Friday.
As motorists pass through, officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and drug impairment — including marijuana, prescription and some over-the-counter medication — with officers checking drivers for licensing, causing momentary delays.
The checkpoints will be placed in a location with high numbers of collisions and DUI arrests, the department said in a news release.
Funding for the checkpoint is provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety.
