The San Francisco police Department conducted a DUI checkpoint in the Bayview district, located at Third and Fitzgerald streets. Police arrested two drivers for driving under the influence of alcohol and another for possession of narcotics.

Five drivers were arrested for driving with a suspended or revoked license and another driver for driving a vehicle without ever having a license issued, police said.

Thirteen additional drivers were cited for infractions, police said.

In San Francisco, law enforcement agencies had made 85 drunk driving arrests as of Thursday as part of a summer crackdown that started Aug. 17th and extends through Monday. That number is about a third lower than last year’s tally, according to spokeswoman Jan Ford.

Sobriety checkpoints are scheduled in the city for Sunday in North Beach.
