The checkpoint will serve as a reminder to the Central Los Angeles community to use designated drivers and not drink and drive. Funding for this checkpoint comes from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

We can all help make our streets safer. Report Drunk Drivers – Call 911.

Our message is simple: if you drive drunk, you will be arrested!
