Newport-Mesa police will conduct DUI checkpoints over the next two nights, authorities announced.
From 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. Friday, Newport Beach police will be stationed on northbound Dover Drive and 16th Street, stopping vehicles.
Officers chose the location because of its proximity to bars and restaurants, officials said.
From 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday, Costa Mesa police will be stationed at Adams Avenue and Mesa Verde Drive West checking for inebriated drivers and drivers without a valid license.
Both checkpoints are funded by the state Office of Traffic Safety.
