Irvine DUI Checkpoint was announced by the Irvine Police Department for the City of Irvine, at Barranca and Culver.

Orange County DUI Checkpoints Tomorrow in Santa Ana.

Even before the Orange County DUI Checkpoints Tonight in Irvine and Orange were announced, we have covered here before all the reasons why DUI checkpoints are a bad idea, and why they don’t work.
However, there is big money in DUI Checkpoints. And checkpoints in an area like Raitt Street in Santa Ana may pick up many non-DUI violations, like lack of registration, lack of insurance, or gang or narcotic activities, that allow police to seize vehicles, meaning shared impound fees that are usually in the thousands, which can’t be collected for DUIs, since a drunk driver is not subject to impound.
That, plus officer overtime paid by grants and the money from federal and state grants, guarantee that DUI checkpoints occur over and over again, rather than the more effective DUI saturation patrols.
