The Alachua County Sheriff's Office will conduct a checkpoint this weekend on SW 13th Street.

Deputies will be holding a driver's license and safety equipment checkpoint in the 3000 block of SW 13th Street, the agency reported. The detail will be held from 1 a.m. to 4 a.m. Sunday morning.

The Sheriff's Office held a checkpoint in the same area last month. The detail was in response to the county's high fatality rate last year, which totaled more than 50 people, and a series of recent traffic crashes in the county, the agency reported.
