Orange County DUI Checkpoints: Superbowl Sunday
This weekend, especially Sunday during and after the Superbowl, local and county law enforcement will be looking for persons driving under the influence of drugs, or alcohol. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is doing a county-wide series of patrols, looking for drunk drivers in several specific cities (Laguna Woods, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Hills and Aliso Viejo), as is the Fullerton Police Department, for the City of Fullerton. The City of Orange is also doing a DUI checkpoint this weekend.
Fullerton Police sent a press release to law firms and other interested parties stating that the Fullerton Police Department will deploy additional officers on special DUI saturation patrols on Super Bowl Sunday specifically to stop and arrest drivers showing signs of alcohol or drug impairment, as part of their NHTSA’s “Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk” campaign.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department also sent the following press release regarding DUI Checkpoints this Weekend:
