The purpose of the sobriety checkpoint is to reduce the number of injuries, deaths, hit-and-run traffic accidents, and property damage associated with the intoxicated driver. The Los Angeles Police Department seeks to achieve these goals through enforcement and public awareness.
These DUI saturation patrols are being deployed in response to an increase in DUI related traffic accidents in the Newton geographic area of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Funding for these DUI saturation patrols comes from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. We can all help make our streets safer.
Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1.
For further information contact Sergeant Richard Lockett, Central Traffic Division, Community Safety Unit at 213-972-1864.
