If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI if you are stopped at the Santa Monica DUI checkpoint Friday.

Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspensions and other expenses that can exceed $10,000, not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.
