LAPD Sobriety Checkpoint

What:
LAPD Conducts Sobriety Checkpoint

When:
Saturday, May 27, 2006
8:00 PM to 2:00 AM

Where:
Highland Avenue at Odin Street in Hollywood Area

Who:
West Los Angeles Division and West Traffic Division Officers

Why:
The purpose of the sobriety checkpoint is to reduce the number of traffic collisions involving intoxicated drivers through enforcement and public awareness. The message is simple, “You Drink & Drive, You Lose.” Motorists approaching a checkpoint will see information advising them that a sobriety checkpoint is ahead. Once diverted into a lane, a motorist will be detained only a few moments while an officer explains the purpose of the checkpoint.

Officers and Reserves from West Los Angeles Area and West Traffic Division will staff the checkpoint. The California Office of Traffic Safety in their efforts to support the apprehension of drunk drivers has provided the funds to conduct this operation.

For further information contact Sergeant O. C. Smith, West Traffic Division, at 213-473-0222..
