Funding Used to Conduct More DUI Checkpoints

Planning to drink and drive? You better think twice.

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, grants are being used to fund more DUI checkpoints than ever before. The California Highway Patrol backs up this statement with its most recently released figures. In 2009 there were more than 2,000 checkpoints throughout the state, during which 458 people were arrested for DUI, 2,370 citations were issued, and 1,453 unlicensed drivers were discovered. While the amount of people arrested for drunk driving is significantly lower than the amount of people ticketed for driving without a license, the CHP says people who drive with a suspended or revoked license are four times more likely to get in a fatal accident and 11 times more likely to drive under the influence.

The CHP still considers drunk driving a major problem in California, and Ramon Perez, an officer with the California Highway Patrol, says the CHP plans to continue hitting areas with a high DUI rate. In his own words, "We're going to get the most bang for our buck in terms of educating the public."

What does this mean for Orange County residents? If you plan to drink and drive-don't. If you do not have a valid driver's license, don't get behind the wheel and drive. The state is cracking down hard on drunk driving offenders and people who drive without a license, and the police will not hesitate to place you under arrest, issue a citation, and impound your vehicle. In the event that you are arrested, you can depend on an Orange County DUI attorney at the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry to help you address your charges or citation and work diligently to secure the best possible outcome.
