The city of Malibu is working to implement a program to crack down on drunken driving along Pacific Coast Highway as part of a $108,175 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.
"It is crucial to educate and remind all citizens that one person's decision to drive under the influence can not only harm that individual, but also devastate an entire community," Malibu Mayor Lou La Monte said.
The grant will be used to increase the number of DUI checkpoints along PCH and provide public education about the dangers of driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
"We thank the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the California Office of Traffic Safety for their help in implementing this anti-DUI program in Malibu, and appreciate the patience and cooperation of any drivers inconvenienced by the checkpoints. We must all work together to prevent future tragedies," La Monte said.
