Sobriety checkpoint scheduled for Sunday

Law enforcement officials in San Francisco will conduct a sobriety checkpoint Sunday in an effort to reduce DUI-related crashes and educate
drivers about the danger of drunken driving.

Police will run the checkpoint from 8:30 p.m. until about 1 a.m. Monday at an undisclosed location in the city.

All vehicles may be stopped and checked, and anyone who appears to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be arrested.

The operation will involve San Francisco, U.S. Park, and San Francisco State University police officers.

The funding for the checkpoint is provided by a grant from the state's Office of Traffic Safety.
