Central Traffic Sobriety Checkpoint

WHAT:
Sobriety Checkpoint  
        
WHEN:
Friday, September 3, 2010
7 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.

WHERE:
In LAPD’s Newton Area near Slauson Avenue and Olive Street
        
WHO:
LAPD Central Traffic Division Officers
     
WHY:
The purpose of the sobriety checkpoint is to reduce the number of traffic collisions involving intoxicated drivers, as well as the number of hit-and-run traffic collisions.  The Los Angeles Police Department seeks to achieve these goals through enforcement and public awareness.

This checkpoint will be implemented in response to the high incidence of DUI related traffic collisions that have afflicted the area near Slauson Avenue and Olive Street in the past three months. Funding for this checkpoint comes from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.  We can help make our streets safer.  To report drunk drivers- Call 9-1-1.

For further information contact Sergeant Thomas Tavares, Central Traffic Community Safety Unit, at 213-972-1864, or LAPD Media Relations Section at 213-486-5910.
