Police across Orange County will ramp up enforcement this holiday weekend in an effort to dissuade people from driving drunk.
DUI saturation patrols will be out Saturday and Sunday nights in Newport Beach, Irvine and Laguna Beach, according to a release from the Newport Beach Police Department.
Sobriety checkpoints are scheduled for Anaheim, La Habra, Buena Park and Seal Beach.
The California Highway Patrol will also deploy an increased number of officers to freeways and unincorporated roads through midnight Monday.
Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, which is also a time for graduations, holiday travel and parties.
"Sobriety checkpoints are a proven deterrent along with the 'high visibility' enforcement campaigns to change behavior such as drunk driving, driving unrestrained and driving distracted," said Chris Murphy, director of the California Office of Traffic Safety, in the release.
