La Mirada~
The La Mirada Public Safety Team will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on June 20, 2009.  In an effort to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes, DUI checkpoints are conducted to identify offenders and get them off the street, as well as educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving.

All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. This DUI/Drivers License checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies, as well as insuring drivers have a valid driver's license.  A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers.
