Santa Ana police Thursday announced a drunken driving and license checkpoint this weekend.

Police will set up in the 500 block of West First Street about 9 p.m.. Friday and start screening drivers to make sure they are sober and properly licensed, wrapping up about 3 a.m. the next morning.

An unlicensed driver is almost five times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident than a licensed driver, Santa Ana police said, citing a Department of Motor Vehicles study.

Drunken drivers will be arrested. Unlicensed drivers could have their cars towed and impounded.
