Police will be looking for drunken drivers tonight at a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location in Oakdale.
The checkpoint is part of a law enforcement effort to reduce deaths and injuries caused by alcohol-related crashes, Oakdale police said.
The checkpoint also is an effort to educate the public on the dangers of driving under the influence and to encourage sober designated drivers.
Oakdale police will look for those driving without a valid license at the checkpoint, which is funded by a grant from the state Office of Traffic Safety.

"DUI arrests can be embarrassing and expensive, but they're easy to prevent," said Oakdale Police Chief Marty West.
"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."
