[UPDATED] Garden Grove Police DUI Checkpoint Results

Categories: Main
UPDATE, FEB. 22, 8:18 A.M.: Despite on and off rain, Garden Grove police did operate a sobriety checkpoint Friday night.

Police Sergeant Carl Whitney of GGPD's Traffic Division says four drivers were arrested for DUI and 15 vehicles were impounded, with 15 citations doled out to drivers for DUI, being unlicensed and/or driving on a suspended license.

In response to reader requests, the Weekly is following up DUI checkpoints we preview with the results of the operations

ORIGINAL POST, FEB. 18, 5:17 P.M.: There are two words to key in on in the Garden Grove Police Department's announcement of a sobriety checkpoint on Garden Grove Boulevard beginning at 9 tonight:

"Weather permitting."

Yep, the slick roads outside may put the kabosh on the operation scheduled to continue through 3 a.m. Saturday.

"Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested," reads the cop shop's announcement. "Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs--Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest."

Mottos are cool!

As usual, funding for the operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Stay thirsty, my friend.

Thanks Matt...It would be nice to see more specific stats,From what I read there were 4 DUI's which should equal 4 vehicles impounded. How did they determine the charges for the 11 other drivers? no license in possession? How long did the checkpoint operate?

Don't drink and drive. It's not worth it.

Checkpoints are not legal…It does not matter the reason, saving lives, protecting children, blah, blah, the Fourth Amendment is not some social good to be balanced against other social goods it is a consitutional categorical prohibition of random searches period. It supersedes the U.S. Supreme court, federal law, state law, executive order and international treaty and is only allowed at points of entry to the country if you don’t like it change the law.


Loss of freedom due to illegal search is never worth it. Unless you find a thermo-nuclear device about to detonate.


which is the reason they post warnings on this site and other news sites. they say it avoids the illegal search as they are supposed to allow legal turn arounds. and from what I have read, they are NOT allowed to check ID's or registration or Insurance, but why do it if they cannot make a buck, (yes the ulterior motive is seizing unregistered and uninsured vehicles). The statistics show few DUI arrests are made, but a lot of vehicles are seized. Of course, usually from poor people.
