The West Sacramento Police Department has announced it will hold  DUI and driver’s license checkpoints this weekend somewhere in West Sacramento. The department plans to set up checkpoints both Saturday and Sunday nights, beginning at about 7 p.m. on both Aug. 30 and 31. The checkpoints may be operational until as late as 3 a.m. the next mornings.

Driver’s passing through these checkpoints will be screened for signs of intoxication, and their driver’s licenses will be checked.

The police department often announces these checkpoints in advance to discourage drunk driving. But it keeps the exact location a surprise.
