DUI Checkpoints Return to Los Angeles
If seems like it's been a little while since the Los Angeles Police Department rolled out some of its driving-under-the-influence checkpoints and patrols, it has.
The LAPD skipped October's first weekend. Even traffic cops have to take some time off once in a while.
But the checkpoints and beefed-up DUI patrols are back and, given the time of year, we suspect this is just the tip of the iceberg as we head toward the holiday drinking season. Here's the 411 on this weekend's checkpoints:
-Tonight from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. a checkpoint will be waiting for you at Victory Boulevard at Bellaire Avenue in scenic North Hollywood.
