DUI Checkpoint tonight in Hermosa Beach

In what seems like a preventative measure to educate the masses that will certainly flock to Hermosa Beach for a stay-cation during upcoming Labor Day Weekend, the Hermosa Beach Police Department along with the South Bay DUI Task Force will institute a DUI Checkpoint tonight (8/24/12). According to the HBPD the checkpoint starts at 9:00 p.m. tonight and goes till 3:00 a.m. and will survey motorists heading east on Artesia Boulevard just west of Prospect Avenue. Arrests will most likely be made but the main purpose of any DUI Checkpoint is to remind folks of the dangers of driving while impaired.

Best remedy for driving while under the influence is to simply use a bike or spring for a taxi cab, so be safe tonight and enjoy one of the last summer weekends in the South Bay.
