Our Newport Beach DUI Lawyers wanted to let you know that the Traffic Division of the Newport Beach Police Department will be conducting a sobriety/driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, April 27, 2012. The location of the checkpoint will be northbound Jamboree Rd. at San Joaquin Hills Dr. The approximate hours of operation will be from 8:00 p.m. until 3:00 am.
The checkpoint location was selected based upon its proximity to bars and restaurants. The film festival, plus good weather, might make this a productive one for them, even though, as I’ve mentioned in the past, DUI checkpoints in Orange County and elsewhere don’t significantly catch many people DUI, or lead to an increase in Orange County DUI arrests.
