The Laguna Beach Police Department held its most recent DUI checkpoint last weekend as part of their continued efforts to crack down on those who choose to drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

A spokesperson for the department also said that officers will be visiting downtown-based restaurants and bars this upcoming weekend to speak with people about the dangers of driving while impaired.  Buzzed driving is the same as drunk driving, they point out.

These efforts are part of an 18-day initiative that will run through Sept. 7.  Law enforcement agencies throughout the state are prepping for the upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend and are working to get their message out– Drive sober or get pulled over.

Laguna Beach PD officials are urging everyone who is planning on spending a night out on the town to plan a safe way home in advance.  According to a report by the Coastline Pilot, statistics show that about one third of divers who are involved in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their system.
