Irvine Joins Anaheim, Placentia and Buena Park in DUI Checkpointing Saturday Night
The Irvine Police Department just announced a DUI checkpoint Saturday night at Jamboree Road and Birch Street.
This is the first of eight such ops the department has scheduled in coming months.
As we previously reported, Anaheim, Buena Park and Placentia also have DUI stops planned Saturday night. The Placentia Police Department also plans special saturation patrols, where officers target streets known for drunken driving, Monday night.
From 12:01 a.m. Dec. 14 through midnight Dec. 21--the first half of a countywide winter holiday enforcement campaign--411 arrests for being drunk or druggy while driving were made by some of Orange County's 38 law enforcement agencies who together are known as the "Avoid the 38" task force.
