Anyone finding the need to drive through Anaheim or Irvine tonight might want to be extra cautious because those cities’ respective police departments will be setting up DUI checkpoints there.

The Anaheim checkpoint will be on Brookhurst Street at
Broadway between the hours of 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. The Irvine checkpoint will be in the area of Culver Drive and Alton Parkway and will be up between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m.

“DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence,” states a Nov. 21 news release from the Anaheim PD. “Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.”

The Irvine PD says their checkpoint will be clearly marked and vehicles will be selected for further screening on a “pre-set basis to ensure objectivity.” Those who are selected will be “greeted and given information about the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.” From there, “trained officers will direct suspected impaired drivers to a secondary area for further evaluation,” according to the news release.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, police departments like Anaheim and Irvine want the media to publicize the times and locations of their DUI checkpoints. “IPD publicizes these highly visible sobriety checkpoints to deter impaired drivers, encourage the use of sober designated drivers and rideshare services, and bring increased awareness to the consequences of impaired driving,” states the Irvine PD news release.

Funding for the checkpoints is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.

    1. Hi everyone I am Emily Naomi wanna give a big thanks to this wonderful psychic for bringing my husband back to me.. I never really believed in magic spells or anything spiritual but a trusted friend opened my eyes to the truth about life. My marriage was heading to divorce a few months ago. I was so confused and devastated with no clue or help on how to prevent it, till I was introduced to this psychic Priest Ray that did a love spell and broke every spiritual distraction from my marriage. A day later my husband started showing me love and care even better than it used to be, he’s ready to talk things through and find ways for us to stay happy. It’s such a miracle that my marriage can be saved so quickly without stress. You can also contact him for help by email psychicspellshrine@gmail. com or WhatsApp: +12133525735
