The Laguna Beach Police Department is apparently wasting no time spending the $32,000 grant they just received to combat drunk driving. The LBPD just announced that they will be conducting a DUI/driver's license checkpoint this upcoming weekend, which for some is a four-day-long affair leading into Christmas Tuesday.
The location is undisclosed, but will be within city limits on Friday, Dec. 21, from 9 p.m. till 3 a.m. There will also be roving DUI saturation patrols deploying in the city on Saturday night, Dec. 22, also from 9 p.m. till 3 a.m.
"Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have resulted in 60 injury crashes harming 85 of our friends and neighbors,” said LBPD Lieutenant Jeff Calvert.
According to the LBPD, in California, alcohol- or drug-impaired driving led to 791 deaths because someone failed to designate a sober driver.
The department will also be checking drivers to ensure they have a valid driver’s license,
