Another sobriety checkpoint tonight in Mission

Be careful out there tonight. Mission police and several other law enforcement agencies will be running another sobriety checkpoint looking for impaired and dangerous drivers.

The checkpoint will extend into early Saturday morning. Drivers will be screened for impairment and those who show signs of intoxication will be tested further to determine if they will be arrested. Mission police say the effectiveness of checkpoints is not just the fear of being arrested, but the number of people who are encouraged not to drive after they have been drinking.

A checkpoint earlier this year netted 12 arrests.
