A comprehensive study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found, that when well-publicized sobriety checkpoints were conducted, alcohol-related crashes and fatalities decreased by more than 20 percent.

Transportation officials credit the increase in DUI checkpoints for the nearly 17% reduction in alcohol-related deaths in California, and for an overall nationwide decline in such deaths.The LAPD has 132 sobriety checkpoints scheduled throughout the course of next year.

The big Holiday DUI crackdown begins this weekend. Multiple dui checkpoints and roving saturation patrols are expected across Los Angeles and Orange Counties as well as the Inland Empire, Ventura County and San Diego.

“The Pasadena Police Department, together with local police, Los Angeles County Sheriff, California Highway Patrol, and the “Avoid the 100 DUI Taskforce”, will be working during the holiday season from December 16, 2011, to January 2, 2012, to arrest anyone caught driving drunk behind the wheel.” (Thank you Drunk Driving Facts)


Please take care of yourself, your family, your friends, and all those that are out on the road. Have a safe and wonderful holiday alive – don’t drink and drive.
