California DUI checkpoints during the week?! What?! This is ridiculous.

California DUI attorneys reported a California DUI checkpoint on 19th Street Tuesday night in Costa Mesa, California netted more than two dozen tickets but no California DUI arrests, California DUI lawyers learned today.

About 900 cars passed through the California drunk driving checkpoint, stationed at 19th Street and Pomona Avenue, Tuesday night with 236 drivers being screened by California DUI police. Officers stopped 21 drivers for California DUI investigations, but arrested none. Ha!

Three drivers were cited for driving without their license, another was cited for not having a valid license. Eight drivers were cited for not being licensed drivers. One driver was given a ticket for having an open container in the car while a dozen other people were cited for other kinds of vehicle code violations. In total, three cars were impounded.

Costa Mesa police will conduct another California DUI checkpoint April 4.

Funding for the California DUI checkpoints is provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety; apparently they have money to burn even if it's not productive.
