The DUI checkpoints in Orange County mentioned here are all funded by grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, and with the support of MADD and other agencies. Impound fees also are split between the police agencies and the various impound and tow lots involved, and officer overtime is the main funding for the DUI checkpoints in Orange County and in surrounding counties, as it is all over California.
