The Anaheim Police Department Traffic Unit holds a DUI/drivers license checkpoint tonight from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.
The exact location, you ask?
Ball Road east of Beach Boulevard.
“Officers will be delaying motorists only momentarily as they look for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment and check for proper licensing,” reads a department advisory. “When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes.”
You know those pills your doctor gives you for the thing caused by the thing? Well, if you pop them, climb behind the wheel and later be deemed to be impaired because of them, you could face a wrath of shit.
“Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, and other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out,” reads the APD announcement.
Funding for the checkpoint comes to the Anaheim PD from a California Office of Traffic Safety grant, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
