Police in Scotts Valley will be holding a sobriety checkpoint Friday.
Officers from several law enforcement agencies in Santa Cruz County will be manning the checkpoints throughout the county as part of the "Avoid the Nine" DUI checkpoint, police said.
The checkpoint will be clearly marked on a road with past drunk driving issues, according to police.
Drivers will be stopped for less than a minute at the checkpoint, unless officers instruct the driver to take a field sobriety test.
"Avoid the Nine" is part of a state grant through the office of traffic safety.
