I know I'll feel safer walking around Costa Mesa this morning.
(Alternative title was: It's always 5 o'clock somwhere...but I think I just used that one somewhere).
Costa Mesa police have scheduled a driver's license/ DUI checkpoint from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. today. Police will be checking vehicles heading westbound on Victoria Street just west of Harbor Boulevard, police said.
More than 1,000 drivers in 2006 were removed from highways in Costa Mesa for suspicion of driving under the influence, police said.
Funding for the program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
