Garden Grove, CA – The Garden Grove Police Department will hold a drunk driving checkpoint on July 31, 2021 from 2100 to 0300 hours in a private location in Garden Grove, Orange County.
Checkpoint locations are chosen based on a history of drunk driving crashes and arrests. The main purpose of checkpoints is not to arrest, but to promote public safety by stopping drunk driving.
During checkpoints, police officers look for signs that the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
As the state continues to work to stop the COVID-19 epidemic, the Garden Grove Police Department is committed to keeping the public safe.
“The security of our community is and will continue to be our mission,” said police chief Tom Dale. “Drunk driving is still dangerous, so we are still looking for a driver with a disability.”
The Garden Grove Police Department reminds the public that alcohol is not the only obstacle to drunk driving. Some prescription and over-the-counter medications can interfere with driving. Always follow the instruction manual and read the warning label for “operation of heavy equipment” including driving or driving a car. Medical and recreational marijuana is legal, but driving under the influence of marijuana is illegal.
Plan to stay home if you plan to take or take any medications that may affect safe driving.
Drivers charged with drunk driving face an average of $ 13,500 in fines and fines, as well as suspension of their licenses.
The program was funded through a grant from the California Road Safety Authority through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
