The Bakersfield Police Department is holding a DUI and driver's license checkpoint on Saturday.

The checkpoint will be held on June 2 at an undisclosed location within city limits between 6 p.m. and 1 a.m.

Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment as well as checking for proper licensing.

Checkpoints are a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug related crashes. 

Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes and other expenses that could exceed $10,000.
