DUI crackdown throughout San Diego over Labor Day weekend

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A county-wide crackdown will target motorists diving under the influence of drugs or alcohol during Labor Day weekend.

Law enforcement agencies in Chula Vista, San Diego, Escondido, Oceanside and Encinitas have scheduled DUI checkpoints starting Friday night and continuing through the end of the holiday weekend.

The agencies declined to disclose the exact location of the checkpoints.

"If officers suspect that a driver has been drinking or is impaired, they will conduct a field sobriety test. Those who fail can expect jail, vehicle storage fees, license suspension, insurance rate increases, along with fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000," San Diego police Officer Mark McCullough said.

The weekend's checkpoints are being funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
