Avoid the 100 Releases Holiday DUI Checkpoint Schedule

Los Angeles County officers and deputies will be out in force for the two-week DUI crackdown starting Friday.

Law enforcement agencies from across Los Angeles County will coordinate DUI checkpoints and patrols starting Friday for a two-week holiday DUI crackdown.

According to the Avoid the 100, officers and deputies will be aggressively looking for impaired drivers and will arrest individuals caught driving under the influence starting Friday, Dec. 14 through Jan. 1.  

Enforcement efforts will include: 72 DUI/driver’s license checkpoints, 153 local DUI saturation patrols and 25 DUI warrant/probation sweeps. The CHP will deploy all available officers during two Maximum Enforcement Periods – Christmas and New Years Weekends. The special enforcement crackdown will run from Dec. 14, 2012, through Jan. 1, 2013.

In 2010, more than 10,000 people were killed nationwide in motor vehicle alcohol or drug-related crashes and in California 791 people died on state’s streets and highways. In Los Angeles County, there were 157 individuals killed.

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, the holiday season can be a dangerous time on the road. During December 2010, 30 percent of all fatalities in motor vehicle traffic crashes involved alcohol-impaired drivers. Statistics showed that among these crashes, 71 percent occurred when drivers had nearly twice the legal limit blood alcohol concentration of .15 percent or higher.

DUI arrestees also face hefty fines and jail time. They may also lose their drivers license, gain higher insurance rates, or even lose their jobs, according to the Avoid the 100.

Funding for the Avoid the 100 DUI campaigns is provided through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.
