The San Pablo Police Department will hold a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location of the city on Saturday, March 26.
The checkpoint will run from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., police said.
“Impaired drivers put others on the road at significant risk,” San Pablo police Lt. Bradley Lindblom said. “Any prevention measures that reduce the number of impaired drivers on our roads significantly improves traffic safety.”
Drivers charged with a first-time DUI face an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties, as well as a suspended license, police said.
The checkpoint was funded by a California Office of Traffic Safety grant via the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
