LOFI

ON THE OTHER HAND…

The Manhattan Beach Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint tonight, Saturday, April 30 from 8:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. The purpose of the checkpoint is to promote public safety, increase the awareness of the dangers associated with drinking and driving, and deter impaired driving and unlicensed driving.

The intent of the checkpoint is to encourage sober designated drivers. By publicizing these educational and enforcement efforts, the Manhattan Beach Police Department believes that drinking and driving and driving while unlicensed will be reduced.

The “Zero Tolerance” approach to enforcement sends a clear message to those who still don’t heed the warning to designate a sober driver before celebrations begin. Simply put, “If you are over the legal limit, you will be arrested.”

The public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 911 if they see a suspected impaired driver. I have one word of advice…UBER.
