SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Highway Patrol says it will conduct a DUI checkpoint on Interstate 80 near the Nevada state line.

The UHP says the checkpoint will take place Friday evening and continue into early Saturday morning.

The checkpoint will be a short distance from the gambling town of West Wendover, Nevada, a popular destination for tourists who live in the Salt Lake City area.

The UHP says it wants the public to start considering the dangers of driving while intoxicated with Halloween coming up soon.
