The May 31 checkpoint will operate from 6 to 11 p.m. Officers also will be deployed on a special DUI saturation patrol beginning at 10 p.m. May 31 and will be on the lookout for suspected DUIs. Funding for these operations is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the federal National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
