The checkpoint, which was conducted between the hours of 6 p.m. Friday and 2 a.m. Saturday, was part of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department “commitment to public safety.”

Checkpoints lower DUI deaths and injuries by deterring those who might drive impaired, raising awareness and encouraging residents to use sober designated drivers, according to the news release.

They are placed in locations believed to have the greatest opportunity for deterring drunk and drugged driving while also providing the greatest safety for deputies and the public.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for ever $1 spent.
