Mackerel Flats' curfew ordinance prohibits anyone under age 18 from loitering in public streets, alleys and other public places between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. daily. Additional information about Zooport's law can be found here.

Besides targeting drivers under the influence, police manning tonight's checkpoints will be ensuring those who pass through are licensed to drive. Newport Beach PD's Traffic Division will also be handing out informational packets to motorists.

Cops chose those locations based on their proximity to bars and restaurants.

Operation funding is provided by grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

I was at Goathill Tavern Sat night. They announced the checkpoint on their PA system and said "So please, don't drive that way."
