They say March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb, but the month made famous by Shakespeare still has some bite left in it.

The LAPD is prepared to make this your least favorite month of all time. It has weekend DUI checkpoints ready for you in Koreatown, South L.A. and Sherman Oaks -- starting tonight:

-Tonight a DUI checkpoint will be operating at South Vermont Avenue and West Sixth Street from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.
