Tonight's Santa Ana DUI Checkpoint Won't Have at Least One OC Weekling to Kick Around

I'm sure glad the Weekly moved from its former HQ in Santa Ana. I'd take Fairview Street south from Civic Center Drive to get home, which means if I worked late tonight and my office was still where it used to be, I'd be cruising through a Santa Ana Police Department DUI checkpoint.

Not that we drink and drug while on the clock here . . . all the time.

The checkpoint is scheduled to run from 7:30 tonight through 1:30 a.m. Saturday near the 400 block of South Fairview.

All drivers who pass through between those hours will be checked for signs of drinking, drugging or not having a valid license to drive (facial ticks give it away every time).

Upcoming Events

Funding the operation comes from a California Office of Traffic Safety grant, administered through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
