County Launches DUI Checkpoint Campaign Tomorrow

In addition to Altadena, there will be DUI checkpoints in other local areas, including Pasadena, South Pasadena, Sierra Madre, and Monrovia.

Beginning Friday and stretching through Labor Day, there will be DUI checkpoints and patrols throughout LA County.

Los Angeles County's Avoid the 100 DUI Task Force joins law enforcement agencies throughout the state for the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.

The annual summer campaign targets the spike in DUIs and alcohol-related car accidents during the summer months, according to an Avoid the 100 press release.

Local law enforcement agencies, as well as the California Highway Patrol, will be “aggressively looking” for impaired drivers during the two-week period.
