Sobriety checkpoint set for Saturday

Gregory Crofton

A sobriety checkpoint is expected to be set up somewhere within the limits of South Lake Tahoe on Saturday between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m.

Officers from the California Highway Patrol and South Lake Tahoe Police Department will work the checkpoint.

“It is obvious the department must continue to set these up to hopefully remind motorists to have a designated driver because laws are strict, and if you do drink and drive and you are caught, you’ll pay a substantial penalty for it, hopefully not with your life,” said CHP Officer Earl Boyd.
