Patch reported on Monday that the Los Angeles Police Department announced that it would conduct a DUI / Driver’s License checkpoint near Culver Junction and Culver City Thursday, September 2, 2021.
A spokesperson for the LAPD said in a statement that the checkpoint would be held from 6:00 pm. to 11:00 pm at the intersection of Venice and Culver Boulevards.
Officials want to remind area motorists that it’s important to remember to stay safe as summer is coming to a close. LAPD said in a statement:
“No matter how you choose to celebrate the end of summer and Labor Day weekend, make sure you do so responsibly. Take necessary precautions to protect yourself and your family by buckling up, ditching the distractions, following the speed limit, and never driving impaired.”
In anticipation of the upcoming Labor Day Holiday, the Los Angeles Police Department has increased the number of officers on patrol in the coming days.
Law enforcement agencies have been conducting an increased number of DUI / Driver’s License checkpoints all around Southern California as part of a nationwide campaign, “Stay sober or get pulled over.”
Funding for the project is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Study and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
LAPD Officer Inman of the Traffic Group told reporters, “Driving impaired is risky and puts yourself and others in serious danger. If you are taking a road trip over the next few weeks, make good choices and drive like your closest friends and family are in the cars around you.”
Officials would also like to remind motorists that driving under the influence does not just mean alcohol. Also included are those driving under the influence of marijuana, over-the-counter medications, and some prescription drugs.
