The Oakland Police Department is planning a DUI and license checkpoint tonight between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.

The traffic unit of the City of Oakland Police Department is planning a DUI and Drivers License checkpoint tonight within Oakland city limits. In the past, these checkpoints have been set up close to the Webster Tube, snaring Alameda-bound drivers.

A press release from the Oakland Police Department says that officers will be checking drivers for proper licensing, as well as looking for signs of alcohol or drug impairment.

Impaired drivers risk jail time, license suspension, insurance premium increases, fees, fines, classes and other expenses that can exceed $10,000.

Oakland police say that research shows that regular, well-publicized, checkpoints can reduce the incidence of alcohol related automobile crashes by an average of 20 percent.

A 1987 California Supreme Court ruling held that checkpoints must be publicized to help ensure their constitutionality.
