Valley Traffic Division to Conduct Driver's License and Sobriety Checkpoint

What:
Sobriety and Driver's License Checkpoint

When:
Saturday, December 17, 2005
7:00 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.

Where:
Van Nuys, San Fernando Valley

Who:
Valley Traffic Division

Why:
The LAPD Valley Traffic Division will conduct a driver's license and sobriety checkpoint this Friday evening in the community of Van Nuys. The checkpoint is part of the LAPD’s ongoing effort to reduce drinking and driving.

Motorists approaching the checkpoint will see information signs advising them that a sobriety checkpoint is ahead. Once diverted into a lane, drivers will be detained only a few moments while an officer explains the purpose of the checkpoint.

The checkpoint will be in accordance with guidelines for checkpoint operations as specified in the Supreme Court decision of Ingersol vs. Palmer. Based on traffic volume, all motorists will be checked. If traffic becomes congested, vehicles will be chosen according to a pre-selected standard (e.g., every 3rd or 5th vehicle) to assure objectivity.

For more information, please contact Sergeant Robert Kirk, Valley Traffic Division at 818-756-8381.
