South Traffic Division Sobriety Checkpoint NA11070kr

WHAT:         
Sobriety and Driver’s License Checkpoint

WHEN:   
Saturday, April 09, 2011
6 p.m. to 1 a.m.

WHERE:   
Southbound Western Avenue between Slauson Avenue and 52nd Street

WHO:   
Officers from the LAPD’s Crime Task Force/Driving-Under-the-Influence
Enforcement Detail, South Traffic Division
        
WHY:             
Despite the tireless efforts of thousands of advocates and law enforcement officers alike, drunk driving continues to be one of America’s deadliest crimes.  This operation will be conducted in an effort to reduce the incident of injuries, death, and property damage associated with the intoxicated driver at this location. Although 77th Division has experienced a 32 percent decrease in Driving Under the Influence related traffic collisions year to date as compared to 2010, one innocent life has been lost.  The checkpoint will serve as a reminder to the community of 77th Division to use designated drivers and not drink and drive.  Our message is simple: if we catch you driving drunk, you will be arrested.  

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 9-1-1.

CONTACT:
For further information, contact South Traffic Division’s Sergeant Mark Guardado, Crime Task Force/Driving-Under-the-Influence Enforcement Detail, at 213-485-7336 during the hours of 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. or the LAPD Media Relations Section at 213-486-5910.
