Do you know the statistics of drunk driving in the area you live? Los Angeles has seen 2,818 injuries and sixty fatalities from 7,048 traffic collisions over the past three years. All of those accidents were caused by a driver under the influence.

The Los Angeles Police Department wants everyone to know that they can help prevent accidents and deaths like these. One of the things that must be done if you are planning a party or hitting the town when you know alcohol will be involved is to designate a sober driver, and insist others have one, too. Arrests due to driving under the influence can cost more than $10,000, and lead to jail time, higher insurance rates, and the loss of your driver’s license.

The Los Angeles Police Department is committed to supporting Vision Zero in the goal of ending all traffic related collision deaths by 2025. One way they do this is by setting up DUI checkpoints. These checkpoints are essential to communities with high alcohol collision rates. They believe these accidents can be stopped due to enforcement and education.

These enforcement efforts are funded by a grant provided by the California Office of Traffic safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Everyone is encouraged to help keep our roads free from DUI-related traffic accidents. Call 911 to report drunk drivers.
