The Irvine Police Department runs a sobriety checkpoint from 8 tonight through 2 a.m. Saturday.

The location: the area of Culver Drive and Irvine Boulevard.

This is the fifth in a series of 10 checkpoints IPD has scheduled through September.

But why?

Upcoming Events

"NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) research has shown that high-visibility enforcement can reduce drunken driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent," reads a department advisory.

"IPD publicizes these highly-visible sobriety checkpoints to deter impaired drivers, encourage the use of sober designated drivers and bring increased awareness to the consequences of impaired driving."

Funding comes from a California Office of Traffic Safety grant, through the NHTSA.
