LONG BEACH, Calif. — Holiday revelers should make sure they have their designated drivers at the ready Friday because the Long Beach Police Department will be out in force looking for drunk drivers.

The impaired driver checkpoint will screen for drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and those driving unlicensed, from 6 p.m. Friday to 2 a.m. Saturday in the South Division area, police said.
