The Whittier Daily News is reporting that the city of La Mirada's department of public safety will join law enforcement agencies throughout the state as part of California's 18-Day Holiday DUI Crackdown campaign. More than 300 DUI/driver's license checkpoints have been planned in cities throughout California in an effort to catch drunk drivers and people driving without a valid license.
The campaign, which began on Dec. 16 and will run until Jan. 3, is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Traffic Highway Safety Administration.
Last Wednesday, www.ocduilawblog.com reported that 17 people were arrested on suspicion of DUI in Garden Grove as a result of a checkpoint sponsored by this campaign, and we expect several more DUI arrests will take place while the campaign is in effect.
