Semi-friendly police officer here
".... The Pacifica Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/driver's license checkpoint on (Saturday) September 19, 2015 at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 PM and 1:00 AM.

.... Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment with officers checking drivers for proper licensing, delaying motorists only momentarily.  When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes.  Drugs which may impair driving not only include illegal narcotics, but many prescription drugs, marijuana, an even some over-the-counter medications.

.... Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.  Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000, not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out."
