The San Luis Obispo Police Department plans to conduct DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols in the city this weekend.
Areas with high frequencies of collisions and DUI arrests will be monitored by the department’s DUI Enforcement Team on Saturday from 7 p.m. until 3 a.m., according to a news release.
Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and drug impairment — including marijuana, prescription drugs and some over-the-counter medication.
“Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized proactive DUI operations are conducted routinely,” the release said.
