The purpose of the Sobriety checkpoint is to reduce the number of traffic collisions involving intoxicated drivers, as well as the number of hit-and-run traffic collisions.  The Los Angeles Police Department seeks to achieve these goals through enforcement and public awareness.

Funding for this checkpoint 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.
