California DUI lawyer checkpoint news

The Costa Mesa Police Department will conduct a California DUI sobriety/license checkpoint from 6 p.m. to midnight Friday in the northbound lane of Santa Ana Avenue at 18th Street.

California DUI Police hope the California DUI checkpoint will educate the public about the dangers of California DUI driving under the influence and/or without a valid driver’s license.

The California DUI program was made possible by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.

“We have been committed to saving lives by aggressively seeking out and removing impaired drivers from the roadways of Costa Mesa for nearly three decades,” Traffic Safety Bureau Officer Tony Yannizzi said.

Costa Mesa California DUI police arrested 1,062 such California DUI impaired drivers in 2007.

According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, drunk driving is the nation’s most frequently committed violent crime, with two people dying every hour from alcohol-related collisions.
