Several Central Coast police departments are holding DUI checkpoints Friday as part of the holiday DUI crackdown.
The Arroyo Grande Police Department is conducting a checkpoint Friday night from 8:30 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. The checkpoint is funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety AVOID Grant Program.
The Santa Maria Police Department Traffic Bureau is also conducting a DUI and Driver's License Checkpoint Friday. It runs from 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. The police department says announcing checkpoints ahead of time reduces the number of DUI drivers on the road.
The Santa Barbara Police Department is conducting a DUI checkpoint from 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Friday. The department will also have DUI enforcement officers on patrol throughout the weekend.
