2 drivers were arrested for DUI while conducting a DUI checkpoint on Friday, October 30, 2020. The checkpoint was held on Alondra Blvd, at Longworth Ave., from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
6 drivers were cited/arrested for operating a vehicle while unlicensed or with a suspended/revoked license, and 3 vehicles were towed.
Checkpoint locations are based on a history of crashes and DUI arrests. The primary purpose of checkpoints is not to make arrests, but to promote public safety by deterring drivers from driving impaired.
As businesses continue to reopen, including bars and restaurants, impaired driving remains a top traffic safety concern.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will continue to hold DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoints throughout the year.
Funding for this checkpoint was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
