San Diego DUI enforcement escalates

State and federal grants are helping law enforcement agencies step up efforts to get San Diego drunk drivers off the road during the holiday season.

In East County, the La Mesa Police Department is joining other agencies to conduct a driver's license/ San Diego DUI checkpoint somewhere in the La Mesa/El Cajon area tonight.

In Carlsbad, police will conduct a San Diego DUI checkpoint Friday night on Palomar Airport Road, east of El Camino Real.

In the South Bay, Chula Vista police will hold San Diego DUI checkpoints on both Friday and Saturday from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. somewhere in the city.

Sheriff's deputies in Santee and Lemon Grove will use a $14,000 grant to conduct San Diego DUI checkpoints and to keep extra personnel on the streets to target San Diego drunk drivers. The San Diego County DUI agencies are also encouraging drivers who spot a potentially impaired San Diego motorist to call 9-1-1.
