The Bakersfield Police Department will be conducting DUI and driver's license checkpoints on Saturday.
BPD said the checkpoints will be held at an undisclosed location within Bakersfield city limits between 6 p.m. and 2 a.m.
Holding DUI checkpoints reduced the number of people injured or killed in alcohol or drug related crashes, BPD said.
Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. They will also be checking drivers for proper licensing.
Drivers caught driving impaired face jail time, fees, fines, DUI classes and other expenses that could exceed $10,000, according to BPD.
The public is asked to help keep roadways safe by calling 911 if they see a suspected impaired driver.
