Costa Mesa Memorial Day weekend DUI Checkpoint results in One (1) DUI arrest

Share it Please
English: A sobriety checkpoint in East Haven, ... Another weekend, another sobriety checkpoint, another ten thousand in officer overtime.

Costa Mesa Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on May 26, 2012, at W. 19th Street and Pomona Ave., between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m.

DUI Checkpoints statistically are not even nearly as effective as DUI Saturation Patrols in apprehending and arresting persons actually driving under the influence.  However, since all the federal, state, and MADD funding is done to support DUI checkpoints, law enforcement prefers them for monetary reasons.  The statistics for this DUI checkpoint, with a 0.00187% arrest rate, bear this out yet again.  Ah, politics.

The checkpoint resulted in the following:
532 Vehicles through the checkpoint
532 Vehicles Screened
1 DUI-Alcohol suspect arrested
0 DUI-Drug impaired suspect arrested
