The LAPD seeks to achieve these goals through enforcement and public awareness. Harbor Division has experienced an 8 percent decrease in DUI related traffic collisions year to date as compared to 2008.
The checkpoint will serve as a reminder to the Wilmington community of Harbor Division to use designated drivers and not to drink and drive.
