Hey CityLifers, I read on the Press Telegram's website
about DUI Checkpoints in the downtown area this weekend
and I thought I would share it with you all.
"The checkpoint will be in the South Division, which includes Downtown Long Beach. It is designed to get drunk drivers and those driving without licenses, or on suspended licenses, off the street while educating the public about the dangers of impaired driving, Officer Israel Ramirez said."
The article also encourages Long Beach citizens who see drunk or impaired driving while they are out on the town to report it 9-11 immediately.
After my motorcycle accident on Mother's Day of '07, I make sure I drive super carefully and I have made sure I watch out for drunk drivers or anyone that can kill me! Have you had any close calls or have you been given a DUI ticket? Tell us your experience and your thoughts on the city and LBPD taking these preventive measures.
