LA DUI Checkpoints Scheduled For The Weekend

This weekend the Los Angeles Police Department has officially declared two L.A. DUI/driver’s license checkpoints in Downtown L.A. and Studio City, hoping it will slow down the rate of vehicle accidents and deaths related to alcohol consumption. The Downtown LA DUI checkpoint will be in effect from Friday 8 p.m. till Sunday 2 a.m, and will be located on Figueroa Street between Eighth and Ninth streets. Studio City DUI checkpoint will be located on Ventura Boulevard between the streets of Canyon Drive and Colfax Avenue from Friday 8 p.m. till Saturday 2 a.m.

According to Sergeant Karmody from Traffic Coordination Section, “L.A. DUI collisions have claimed about 30 lives and caused over 2,000 injuries over the past two years.” Some L.A. locals worry that releasing L.A. DUI checkpoint information allows drunk drivers to escape and go through other routes. On the other hand, “Research shows that crashes involving alcohol drop by an average of 20 percent when well-publicized checkpoints are conducted often enough.” If arrested, drunk drivers may be harshly penalized by receiving jail time, license suspension, insurance increases, or other legal fees that might easily exceed $10,000.

If you or someone you know has been arrested for drunk driving, contact a skilled California DUI attorney for legal assistance.
