The three-day Labor Day weekend is finally upon us. But before you venture out to let loose and get your drink on, there are a couple of DUI and driver's license checkpoints that the Broward Sheriff's Office will be operating that you should know about, starting Friday morning into late Sunday.
First, BSO will be conducting a DUI checkpoint starting Saturday night at the 2800 block of SW 32nd Avenue in Pembroke Park.
The DUI Task Force, along with other agencies, will be conducting the checkpoint operation beginning at 10:30 Saturday night until 4 a.m. Sunday.
BSO says it will be actively enforcing DUI laws and looking for impaired drivers as well as ensuring that motorists have proper driver’s license, registration, and insurance.

So before you head out to enjoy your holiday weekend, be sure you have a designated driver or some other means of getting home if you're going to drink. Or, you can always call AAA for a free ride home.
