DUI Checkpoint over Fourth of July Weekend NA10158ah

DUI Checkpoint

Cahuenga Boulevard  & Broadlawn Drive
North Hollywood, CA

LAPD Valley Traffic Division
                  
Why:      
The holiday weekend is upon us; plans are in place for Independence Day celebrations with friends and family.  However, each year motorist will be in harm’s way thanks to the careless ones who will drink and drive this weekend.

The LAPD and other law enforcement agencies across the state of California will set up checkpoints to check for drunk and unlicensed drivers.  Funding for the DUI Crackdown Campaign comes as a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

As of May 1, 2010, the North Hollywood area has endured over 79 DUI related collisions, an 18 percent increase from the previous year. “Drunk driving is simply not worth the risk.  Not only do you risk killing yourself or someone else, but the trauma and financial costs of a crash or an arrest for impaired driving can be significant,” said Christopher J. Murphy, Director of the OTS. “Violators often face jail time, the loss of their driver’s license, higher insurance rates, attorney fees, time away from work, and dozens of other expenses. So don’t take the chance.  Remember, if you are over the limit, you are under arrest.”

Law Enforcement encourages everyone planning a family gathering over the weekend to first think about how your friends and family will get home after drinking during holiday celebrations. Everyone is encouraged to Report Drunk Drivers! Call 9-1-1 and be ready to describe the vehicle, its location and direction of travel to make your community safer into the summer. With everyone’s help, families won’t remember the Independence Day holiday of 2010 as a time of loss at the hands of another drunk driver.

For more information regarding this checkpoint, please call Media Relations Section at 213-486-5910.
