Orange County Checkpoint - weekend & future California DUI checkpoints

May 12, 2008

A California DUI sobriety checkpoint in Costa Mesa on Friday yielded 13 citations and 10 impounded vehicles, Costa Mesa California DUI Police said.

The California DUI checkpoint on Newport Boulevard and Flower Street saw a total of 2,050 vehicles and screened 410 drivers. Through the California DUI checkpoint and investigations by California DUI police, three drivers were cited for California DUI , two were cited for having no license, three were cited for having a suspended license and one person was arrested on a warrant, California DUI attorneys are told.

Another California DUI checkpoint will be June 6 at Wilson Street and Pomona Avenue. The California DUI checkpoint will have a beefed up patrol as Costa Mesa police will partner with Mothers Against Drunk Driving to help with the California DUI checkpoint, as well as use more patrolling officers on adjacent streets. Funding for the checkpoint program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety as part of a national enforcement campaign, California DUI lawyers understand.
