Seal Beach and Garden Grove Run Checkpoints Tonight; Let's Be Careful Out There

Categories: DUI-yi-yi

If you've had a couple or nine, be careful driving through Garden Grove and Seal Beach tonight because both cities are running checkpoints.

Seal Beach is up first from 6 p.m. through 1 a.m. near Heather and Lampson.

Garden Grove's runs at an undisclosed spot starting at 9 p.m.

And Garden Grove Police announced they'll be running another checkpoint next Friday night, July 19.

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

That's okay, Matt, some of us know that the cops actually WANT the publicity for checkpoints.  The publicity helps in their main tactic - deterrence. Patrols catch drunk drivers in the act.  Checkpoints keep everyone aware that drunk driving is dangerous and illegal, keeping people from driving drunk in the first place and saving lives in the process.


Nice job OCweekly, just warn all the degenerate drunks in the OC.  But then again what do expect from a bunch of wanna be journalists who can't make it to the major leagues like the LA Times, CNN, etc....

Yeah, because that's what we should do, warn the people driving drink which streets to avoid so they can go along their merry little way still endangering everyone. Fucking ridiculous.

@fc2479 That you think CNN is the bigs shows how much you know about journalism...


@GustavoArellano @fc2479  Well I would venture to say that the Communist News Network (CNN)  pays a whole lot more then your little blog/website. Don't need to be a journalist to figure that one out.  At least I admit I am not a journalist, don't know what your excuse is???
