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