DUI Checkpoint In Malibu
Posted by Ivetta Babadjanian on Nov 7, 2012 - 7:32:12 PM

MALIBU—The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has scheduled a DUI checkpoint on Friday, November 9 from 7:30 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. in Malibu. The exact location has not been disclosed in advance.

"Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public," said Sargent Phillip Brooks in a news release. In the last three years, the sheriff's department has reported two fatal, as well as 28 injury-related DUI crashes in Malibu.

The Sheriff's Department has also recently announced the use of a DUI Mobile Enforcement Unit as part of the effort to make Pacific Coast Highway a safer place for drivers. The vehicle can help with screening, sobriety tests and the collection and retention of evidence.

Additionally, the unit has computers and various technology that is able to connect with law enforcement databases and even be used as a mobile command during natural disasters.

"It adds support for DUI, for fire and any incident. I think one of the most important things is obviously public safety and this is an added resource to public safety throughout Malibu and the Santa Monica Mountains," said Malibu Councilman Skylar Peak.

Funding for the unit was provided by Los Angeles County Third District Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky. "Driving under the influence is not smart anywhere, on any road or highway, and poses a dangerous public safety threat. Increasing anti-DUI checkpoints and patrols is a life-saving tool to help put a check on reckless drivers who drink too much and drive through our canyon and mountain communities, risking the lives of residents and visitors alike," Yaroslavsky said.

The mobile unit will be used for Friday's checkpoint which was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
