4th of July California dui checkpoint alert

California DUI lawyers report that California DUI / drunk drivers will be targeted by California DUI law enforcement agencies over the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

To ensure that holiday revelers arrive alive, local California DUI police, Sheriff's Department and California Highway Patrol officers will conduct California DUI sobriety checkpoints and extra patrols throughout the Los Angeles County and the rest of the state beginning tonight and lasting until Monday.

A California DUI checkpoint in Beverly Hills is scheduled for Thursday, and extra patrols will be on the roads in Venice, Redondo Beach, Pomona, South Pasadena, Claremont, Long Beach, Huntington Park, Vernon, San Fernando, Compton and Malibu, among other areas.

Last year during the Fourth of July holiday period, 24 people in California died and 581 people were injured in California DUI / drinking-related accidents.

Motorists who see California DUI - drunk drivers should call 911 to report them, and people who get drunk should have someone drive for them -- or call a cab.

The Los Angeles County "Avoid Task Force" comprises multiple local law enforcement agencies working together to reduce the number of vehicle crashes due to California DUI - impaired driving, according to California DUI attorneys.
