You'll be seeing fireworks the day after the 4th, for sure. And aspirin doesn't help. But try not to be nursing a hangover from a jail cell.

The LAPD is also celebrating our independence from oil England. But cops will also have no problem, as usual, busting their fellow Americans for acting like Irishmen.

And so, without further adieu, here's our DUI checkpoint and drunk patrol cheat sheet for the 4th of July holiday "weekend:"

-Today from noon to 8 p.m. there will be a drunk-driver "saturation patrol" in the LAPD's Harbor Division area, which includes San Pedro, Wilmington and parts of Harbor Gateway.
