California DUI checkpoint tonight!

California DUI checkpoint scheduled for Friday

June 29, 2007

COSTA MESA, California

There is a scheduled DUI checkpoint planned for Friday night between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. on eastbound 19th Street near the intersection of Pomona Avenue.

In 2006, Costa Mesa Police arrested 1,074 motorists for driving under the influence, with the intent of the continued campaign of California DUI / California drunk driving checkpoints to lower that.

The site of the California DUI / California drunk driving checkpoint is near popular Costa Mesa nightclubs including the Detroit Bar and the Avalon Bar, both on 19th Street.

California state law defines drivers as impaired if they are tested with a blood-alcohol level over 0.08 percent.
