[UPDATED with Stanton, Villa Park Patrols:] Costa Mesa Hosts DUI Checkpoint Tonight

See the update at the end of this post about sheriff's department roving patrols tonight.

ORIGINAL POST, JAN. 18, 9:22 A.M.: The Costa Mesa Police Department holds a DUI checkpoint from 8 tonight through 8 a.m. Saturday, which I believe is the longest such operation I've ever reported here.

Guess Righeimer's not only taking back pink slips, he's allowing mucho OT! I kid, I kid . . .

As per department policy, they aren't saying where in the city the stop will be.

Besides signs of boozing or drugging, officers will be looking for drivers who are unlicensed. Come on, we all know what they look like.

The operation is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

You're also encouraged to dial 9-1-1 if you witness a drunken driver.

UPDATE, JAN. 18, 3:22 P.M.: The Orange County Sheriff's Department announced it will conduct roving patrols tonight in Stanton and Villa Park aimed at removing impaired drivers from roads.

As regular nightly patrols are held in those cities, the special roving patrol forces will focus on areas known for DUI incidents, according to deputies.

The Costa Mesa DUI checkpoint is @ Harbor Blvd and Princeton Dr.


Stanton and, uh, Villa Park?! Intriguing scenario ... shitbox Accords from Stanton screaming into U-turns and racing Villa Park-wards to shake off pursuing boys in blue; Bentleys and Rollers from Villa Park zipping in the opposite direction, for the same reason. May they meet in the middle and take a few drunk fucks off the road ...

the checkpoints are usually near the Camp at Bristol & Baker , Newport Blvd & Flower, on West 19th or on Placentia near Estancia I think.
