On Friday and Saturday, the Bakersfield Police Department will be conducting DUI checkpoints.
These driver’s license checkpoints are becoming more and more frequent, especially in California. The goal is to reduce the amount of drunk driving incidents on the roads.

Funding for these checkpoints are provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.
