HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

It's a holiday weekend, so you may see Huntsville Police out conducting DUI checkpoints.

Officers will pick different spots throughout the city to setup. The purpose of these checkpoints is safety. They're not just checking to see if you've been drinking and driving, they'll also make sure you have insurance, a driver's license, and you're wearing a seatbelt.

Some spots the DUI task force may setup checkpoints include Memorial Parkway, Drake Avenue, Jordan Lane, Sparkman Drive, Bailey Cove Road, and other spots.

Earlier this month HPD had been given a grant to crack down on impaired driving.
