Sobriety Checkpoints in Santa Ana TONIGHT and Garden Grove SATURDAY NIGHT!

Sobriety checkpoints are scheduled in Orange County this weekend, with one in Santa Ana kicking off tonight and another in Garden Grove Saturday night.

The Santa Ana operation runs from 9 tonight through 3 a.m. Saturday in the area of 1500 E. McFadden Ave., the police department announced.

Garden Grove's is from 9 p.m. Saturday through 3 a.m. Sunday at an undisclosed location, that city's police agency says.

Besides looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, officers in both cities will be checking drivers for proper licensing, and they promise delays will be brief.

Each department received a California Office of Traffic Safety grant, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, to run the checkpoints.
