Sobriety & Drivers License Checkpoint

When:
Thursday, December 31, 2009
8:00 PM - 3:00 AM

Where:
Hollywood Boulevard at Las Palmas Avenue
Hollywood, California

Who:
Emergency Operations Division

Why:
The purpose of the sobriety checkpoint is to reduce the number of traffic collisions involving intoxicated drivers and hit and run collisions. During this year, residents residing in the Hollywood Area have endured 163 driving under the influence-related and 1,205 hit and run traffic collisions. The checkpoint will educate the community to use designated drivers and not drink and drive. Our message is simple: If we catch you drunk, you will be arrested.

It is the Los Angeles Police Department's goal to continue providing public awareness on the dangers of drinking and driving, and the laws concerning driving without a valid driver's license. Motorists approaching a checkpoint will observe traffic signs, information and police officers advising that a checkpoint is ahead. Once diverted into a lane, each motorist will be detained momentarily while an officer explains the purpose of the checkpoint.

Funding for this checkpoint is provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. We can all help
make our streets safer, please report Drunk Drivers – Call 911.
