The South Lake Tahoe Area California Highway Patrol will conduct a sobriety checkpoint in eastern El Dorado County on Friday, June 10.

The checkpoint will begin around 9 p.m. and will last until approximately 2 a.m., according to a press release from the Highway Patrol.

The exact location of the checkpoint will not be released until about two hours before the checkpoint begins.

“The sobriety checkpoint will be staffed by a team of CHP officers which will be controlling traffic, evaluating driver’s sobriety, and hand out literature warning of the dangers of drinking and driving,” according to the release. “Driver license checks will be conducted and appropriate enforcement action will be taken.”
