MADD, The Center for Disease Control, law enforcement  and others all support well publicized DUI checkpoints as a deterrent for drivers that want to drink. Plan ahead, get your designated driver.
As a victim of a drunk driver, it is my wish that by posting this you will choose to not drink and drive.

The LAPD also offers the following tips for celebrating a safe and responsible Independence Day:

  • Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin;
  • Designate a sober driver;
  • Leave your car keys at home;
  • Call a taxi, call a friend or family member, or use public transportation to ensure you get home safely;
  • Call 911 if you see a possible drunk driver on the road; and,
  • Take the car keys away from someone who is about to drive impaired and assist them in getting home safely.
