Cops Alert Heavy Holiday Drinkers to DUI Checkpoints

We know, it's that time of the year, when Christmas music and your messed up family are driving you to drink -- in that order.

So if you're feeling like the only way you can deal with Christmas carols in November is to start drinking a lot, and right now, then go ahead. But consider yourself warned.

No, we don't care about your hangover, we're warning you not to drink and drive. There's plenty of good reasons, one of which being that the cops are kicking off their holiday fun, too. And that includes a sobriety checkpoint on Saturday night.

Cops will be sniffing out drunks (and their easy to smell) starting 8 p.m. tomorrow until 4 a.m. on Sunday.

Having said that, we know you're still going to drink mindlessly. Fine. But arrange for a designated driver, drink lots of water, and eat lots of turkey legs to soak up all that holiday-poison. If you are hosting holiday events, feed your guests lots of food and limit the booze.

Getting arrested sucks as it is and so do hangovers. But imagine if your drunk ass caused an accident on top of that?

In short: Put a cork in it, people.

Hot spots for these always around Highway entrances, i.e.: SOMA around Howard or Folsom from 6th - 10th streets, Embarcadero, Geary around Park Presidio, etc. If you ask me, love these, totally targets the idiot Bridge and Tunnel crowd. Round 'em up Pigs!!! It takes one to catch one as they say, so this is fitting for all involved...

The cops will announce the location of checkpoints and if you're drunk and drive to a checkpoint you'll be arrested for stupidity. San Francisco supports drinking and don't care if you drive drunk unless you hit someone or something.
