The Crime Task Force/Driving Under the Influence (CTF/DUI) Detail of the LAPD's South Traffic Division will be conducting a DUI checkpoint tonight in order to curtail drunk driving and educate the public. The checkpoint is slated to run from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Avalon Boulevard and Opp Street [map] in Wilmington. The LAPD explains that their " Harbor Division has experienced a 14 percent increase in Driving Under the Influence related traffic collisions year to date as compared to 2009. The checkpoint will serve as a reminder to the community of Southeast Division to use designated drivers and not drink and drive."
