SAPD DUI Checkpoint

SAPD Advisory: Police Department conducting DUI/Drivers License checkpoint Saturday Nov 30th 7:30PM – 1:30AM area of 3300 W. 5th


The Santa Ana Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on Saturday, November 30th, 2013. It will begin at 7:30PM and is scheduled to conclude at 1:30AM. It will be conducted in the area of 3300 W. 5th Street, in the City of Santa Ana.

In an effort to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes, DUI checkpoints are conducted to identify offenders and get them off the street, as well as educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving. All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. This DUI/Drivers License checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies, as well as ensuring drivers have a valid driver’s license. A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers.

A DUI checkpoint is a proven effective method for achieving this goal. By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the Santa Ana Police Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving.

Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested. Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs – Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest. The public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 911 if they see a suspected impaired driver. Funding for this operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

  1. The Council Majority better watch it coming home from Chapter One!

    Oh wait, they get a FREE PASS from Chief Carlos.

      1. I know that their friends consider their comp’s “VP TREATMENT”!
        That kind of behavior was cool when I was 23 and single. Kind of troubling to think that three of the five councilmembers fancy nightclubs and “apple martini’s” .

  2. Common letting drunk people know where DUI points are so they don’t pass thru there.DRUNK BUT NOT STUPID TO GO IN CHECKPOINT!!But yet good in a good way because there’s people out there that can nearly afford a 1000 dollar car and they come here to check where checkpoints are going to be so YOU POLICE OFFICCERS don take away their car.Its sad that there’s people out there who don’t know anything about technology and fall in to them.Therefore they loose there car cause its not worth it taking it out of the pound and then they got to suffer everyday with their kids taking them to school everyday on a very cold weather and the parents taking the bus to work in order to survive.Common this should stop and the government should do the right thing for the right people.

    1. Oh my gawd! That reply was bursting with horrifying grammar and random, yet absent of punctuation, was so painful to read, my eyes are bleeding!
