Celebrate Independence Day Weekend Responsibly NA13112df

Los Angeles: The Fourth of July commemorates our great Nation’s adoption of the Declaration of Independence Day on July 4, 1776, from the Kingdom of Great Britain.  Unfortunately, Independence Day weekend has become an occasion for many community members to celebrate and drink irresponsibly.  As a result of this irresponsible behavior, community members driving under the influence (DUI) has become a tremendous public safety problem over the Independence Day weekend.  The Los Angeles Police Department recommends the following tips to ensure everyone residing or visiting Los Angeles has a safe and sane Independence Day:

•    Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin;
•    Designate a sober driver;
•    Leave your car keys at home;
•    Call a taxi, call a friend or family member, or use public transportation to ensure you get home safely;
•    Call 911 if you see a possible drunk driver on the road; and,
•    Take the car keys away from someone who is about to drive impaired and assist them in getting home safely.

In the Los Angeles Police Department’s on-going effort to save lives and keep the streets free of drunk drivers, the following DUI enforcement activities will be conducted over the holiday week:
