San Francisco police are giving all you boozers plenty of warning that they will be out in force this weekend, looking for drunk and drugged-out drivers.
Starting Saturday at 8 p.m., police will be stationed at the intersection of Geary Boulevard and Steiner Street, where they will screen drivers passing through. The sobriety checkpoint will last though Sunday morning, according to police.
Capt. Denis O'Leary explains exactly what you can expect: "Officers will stop cars in a pre-set order once they are funneled into the checkpoint, waving the others through," he said. "They will talk to each driver, and, if they notice the odor of alcohol, slurred speech, or glassy, watery eyes, will instruct the driver to pull over for further investigation."
San Francisco will join 40 other county DUI crackdowns across California, which will cover 98 percent of the state's population, so don't think escaping to Santa Cruz for the weekend will get you off the hook.
Anyway, our advice: Just stay home Saturday night, open a bottle of wine, and do some spring-cleaning of your own.
