HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — 09/03/2014 — On Monday, September 1st, at about 6:30 PM, the Huntington Beach Police Department received numerous 911 calls regarding a traffic collision in which a vehicle collided with a motorized bicycle in the area of Bolsa Chica Street and Oahu Drive.
Arriving officers located the injured bicyclist lying in the roadway being tended to by citizens.

DUI Checkpoint Nets 4 DUI Arrests, 1 Public Intoxication Arrest, and 14 Citations for Unlicensed Drivers
The Huntington Beach Police Department conducted a Sobriety/Drivers License Checkpoint on Saturday, August 16th, 2014, at Beach Blvd. and Slater Avenue from 7:30 PM to 2:20 AM. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public. Over the past 12 months, there have been 35 alcohol related collisions on Beach Blvd. These resulted in 14 injuries to the vehicles’ occupants and one fatality. There have also been 241citations issued to drivers on Beach Boulevard for being unlicensed and 66 citations for driving on a suspended/revoked license.
Sobriety/Drivers License checkpoints help lower DUI related deaths and injuries. A major component of these checkpoints in the deterrent effect it has on those who might drive drunk and/or drug impaired, unlicensed, or with a suspended/revoked license. Checkpoints help to bring more awareness to motorists and encourage everyone to use sober designated drivers.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any DUI enforcement strategies. Here are some of our statistics from Saturday’s checkpoint:
3520 Vehicles through the checkpoint
1129 Vehicles screened and given pamphlet with information on DUI
6 Standardized Field Sobriety Tests administered
4 DUI-Alcohol impaired drivers arrested
1 Public Intoxication Arrest
14 Drivers cited for operating a vehicle while unlicensed
1 Vehicle impounded
12 Citations issued for various code violations
The Huntington Beach Police Department will be conducting another Sobriety/Drivers License checkpoint on September 20th, 2014, in our ongoing commitment to lowering deaths and injuries upon our streets and highways.
Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the Huntington Beach Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to continue to work together to bring an end to these tragedies.
