Please note that these checkpoints are being paid for with federal funds.

Drivers License” checkpoints are NOT legal. Unfortunately, no one seems to be willing to stand up against the tyranny. And, forget about DUIs & drivers’ licenses, now we know that they’re using these checkpoints to illegally raise revenue via car seizures:

Car seizures at DUI checkpoints prove profitable for cities, raise legal questions

Sobriety (& immigration) checkpoints are currently “legal,” however SCMLA does not support the idea that they are Constitutional, as they are in direct opposition to the 4th Amendment to the Bill of Rights & therefore an unConstitutional law is void at its inception & may be protested at will.

The information below was taken from the LAPD Online website & we are providing it as a service to you.

Also, if anyone gets video of the illegal checkpoints &/or the illegal car seizures, please let us know, because SCMLA would like to either post the video &/or the report.

8:00 p.m. – 3:00 a.m.

The purpose of the sobriety checkpoint is to reduce the number of traffic collisions involving intoxicated drivers and hit and run collisions. In 2010, residents residing in the Northeast Area have endured 42 driving under the influence-related and 504 hit and run traffic collisions. The checkpoint will educate the community to use designated drivers and not drink and drive. Our message is simple: If we catch you drunk, you will be arrested.

It is the Los Angeles Police Department’s goal to continue providing public awareness on the dangers of drinking and driving, and the laws concerning driving without a valid driver’s license. Motorists approaching a checkpoint will observe traffic signs, information and police officers advising that a checkpoint is ahead. Once diverted into a lane, each motorist will be detained momentarily while an officer explains the purpose of the checkpoint.

Funding for this checkpoint is provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. We can all help make our streets safer, please report Drunk Drivers – Call 911.

For further information, please contact Officer Don Inman, Traffic Coordination Section, at 213-486-0703.
