Police will look for drunken drivers this weekend starting with a sobriety checkpoint Friday night at an undisclosed location in Modesto.

Officers also will look for drivers without valid licenses at the checkpoint, according to Modesto police.

The department will deploy saturation patrols Saturday night. The patrols are conducted by officers assigned solely to look for drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Police said those arrested face jail time, loss of their licenses and increased insurance rates. The checkpoint and the patrols are funded by a grant from the state Office of Traffic Safety.
