Palm Desert police will hold a DUI and driver's license checkpoint Friday in Palm Desert.
The checkpoint is set for Augsut 31 from 9 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday, according to Sgt. Dave Adams of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, which contracts with Palm Desert for its policing services.

The checkpoint is aimed to reduce the number of people killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes, Adams said.
The public is encouraged to help keep our roadways safe by calling 911 if they see a suspected impaired driver.
