Buena Park Police Hold DUI Checkpoint Tonight
Don't drink like a fish!
The Buena Park Police Department holds a DUI checkpoint tonight.
The Traffic Unit operation near the intersection of La Palma Avenue and Buena Park Downtown begins at 7 p.m. and continues through 3 a.m. Saturday.
Cops cite recent statistics that reveal 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had at least one drug in their
system as justifying anti-DUI missions like this.
Those caught driving impaired can expect jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes and other expenses that can exceed $10,000.
The Buena Park Police Department receives checkpoint funding from a California Office of Traffic Safety grant, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
