In an effort to decrease drinking and driving, the Roseville Police Department will set up a DUI/drivers license checkpoint Friday, according to a press release. The checkpoint – set up from around 6 p.m. to midnight – will screen drivers passing through for sobriety and for a valid driver’s license at an undisclosed location where a number of alcohol-related arrests have occurred in the past. Drivers who are found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be arrested, and unlicensed drivers may be cited and their vehicles towed. “DUI arrests can be embarrassing and expensive, but they’re easy to prevent,” Roseville Police Chief Mike Blair said. “If you’re drinking, hand your keys over to a designated sober driver, or call a taxi or sober friend for a ride home. Don’t risk an arrest – or worse, a serious injury or even death.” The public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 911 if they see a suspected impaired driver.
