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 traffic collisions that have afflicted the area near Figueroa Street and 9th 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 all help make our streets safer.  Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1.
