WHY:
During the New Year's Eve weekend, the LAPD would like to remind motorists of the importance of not driving impaired. The press conference will provide information on the impacts of impaired (drunk/drugged) driving. MADD will share the message about the dangers of impaired driving in an effort to help save lives. The high-visibility national enforcement campaign, "If You Feel Different, You Drive Different" runs from December 18, 2020, through January 1, 2021. During this period, local law enforcement will show zero tolerance for drunk and drug-impaired driving. We need the media's assistance in reminding drivers about the dangers of impaired driving and the impacts to themselves and others.

For additional information, please contact Detective Ryan Moreno or Officer Gerald Chavarria, South Traffic Division, at 323-421-2500. After hours, call South Traffic Division Watch Commander at 323-421-2577. COVID 19: Facial masks are required, and social distancing will be implemented.
