WHO:
LAPD Officers

WHY:
Labor Day is a National holiday to celebrate the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations.  Unfortunately, Labor Day weekend has become a holiday associated with the overindulgence of alcohol and drunk driving.  To ensure a safe Labor Day Weekend, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) recommends the following tips:
  • 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.
Funding for the checkpoints is provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  We can all help make our streets safer, please report Drunk Drivers – Call 911.  

CONTACT:
For further information, please contact Officer Don Inman, Traffic Coordination Section, at 213-486-0703.
