Bakersfield police have planned a DUI/driver's license checkpoint for Friday.

The checkpoint is an effort to reduce the number of people injured or killed each year in DUI-related collisions and to make sure motorists are properly licensed, a BPD news release said. A major component of DUI checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers.
