Garden Grove Police Department has been holding checkpoints and extra patrols that continue through Labor Day weekend and are aimed at getting drivers under the influence off its streets. But it was a suspected drunken driver who came to Officer Jared Doyle early Sunday morning, as in a head-on collision that sent both to the hospital.

Something to keep in mind as Garden Grove, Newport Beach and San Clemente have sobriety checkpoints tonight, and saturation patrols continue throughout the region courtesy of the Orange County Avoid DUI Task Force's "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign that runs through Labor Day, one of the bloodiest times on local roads.
