Ah, it wouldn't be a gloriously sunny winter weekend in SoCal without drunkards behind the wheel and the good cops who bust 'em.

Thanks to the LAPD, which thinks that letting you know in advance about checkpoints can reduce driving under the influence and warn the public that they're always on the lookout for drunktards, we have the 411 on its latest checkpoint.

"Our message is simple," states the LAPD: "If we catch you driving drunk, you will be arrested."

You know what's funny about this ...

... you'd have to be a real idiot to have been warned about a checkpoint and still get caught.

Here's our theory: Checkpoints really only catch the amateurs. That's fine though, because it's the amateurs who cause all the problems on New Year's Eve, the 4th of July and Lakers championship nights, the last shopping day before Christmas ... So that's fine with us.

Anyway, here's this weekend's checkpoint (at least the one we were told about):

It happens Saturday on Pacific Coast Highway between Broad and Eubank avenues in beautiful Wilmington from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Good luck.
