If you are driving at night and you come upon a section of a street that is coned off, has extra lights, and more police officers than normal, and they are not responding to a situation, it is likely a DUI checkpoint. Unless you are actually driving while intoxicated at the moment you will not have anything to worry about when you are motioned to pull over to their coned off area.
The officer will ask where you are going, if you have been drinking, and if so, how much. If everything checks out, you will be free to keep going to your destination. Those who are found under the influence will have to sit at their on-site Drunk Tank to sober up. Worst case scenario is that the driver would be arrested, but that is usually under the more extreme circumstances.
If that extreme circumstance happens to you or a loved one, you can post bail with a bail bond from Balboa Pier Bail Bond Store.
