Drivers in Siskiyou County will want to drive with extra caution this weekend as California Highway Patrol officers are setting up for a sobriety checkpoint.

C.H.P. officials will conduct a sobriety checkpoint Friday evening.

Officials wouldn't say exactly where the checkpoint will be, but they hope the surprise area will send a clear message to drivers that C.H.P. has a close eye on the roadway.

Yreka CHP Captain George Peck says that wherever the check point is located, they hope to check all vehicles and drivers, of course traffic permitting.
