Sobriety and Driver's License Checkpoint

Los Angeles - The Los Angeles Police Department, Central Traffic Division gathers statistical information on traffic collisions, arrests for driving under the influence (DUI), and Hit-&-Run traffic collisions. Central Traffic Division will be utilizing a problem solving technique directed to the reduction in these categories of traffic collisions. A combined sobriety and driver's license checkpoint will focus attention on education and enforcement of impaired and unlicensed drivers. After receiving requests from community members and patrol officers, a study was done for Central Bureau. The study revealed a high number of DUI and Hit & Run traffic collisions on Figueroa Street.

It is believed that the majority of hit & run traffic collisions involve either DUI and/or unlicensed drivers. Drinking and driving is an unacceptable behavior which can cause impairment and lead to property damage, injury and/or death. The Los Angeles Police Department strongly recommends a designated sober driver for those who choose to go out and drink alcoholic beverages. Additionally, the Department warns that if you do not have a driver's license, do not drive. It is against the law and your vehicle will be impounded.

On Friday, October 20, 2000, at 8:00 p.m., the Los Angeles Police Department, Central Traffic Division, will be conducting a "Sobriety & Driver's License Checkpoint". The location is on Figueroa Street between Avenue 50 and Avenue 52.

For further information, contact the Los Angeles Police Department, Central Traffic Division, Community Traffic Complaint & Safety Unit, Officer Joe Jennerson at 213-485-2799.

This press release was prepared by Officer Lyle Michelson, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
