DUI Crackdown Hits Sunset Boulevard Tonight
The Los Angeles Police Department knows where the party people will be on this rare, full-moon-lit Friday the 13th. In fact, on almost any weekend the LAPD has its DUI cops out in force in our very own party town, Hollywood, and in adjacent neighborhoods.
This weekend, cops are doubling down on Sunset Boulevard. There will be two - count 'em - two DUI checkpoints on Sunset. One is planned for Hollywood while other is in Silver Lake.
We've got the times and locations, plus information on checkpoints in West Hollywood, Malibu and more:
