Full Moon DUI Crackdown Targets Downtown, Hollywood
It's the last weekend of summer. Put your white pants away and stop putting lime in your Corona Extra. Better yet, if you're done with college, grow up and stop drinking Corona Extra altogether.
That might help you with this other end-of-summer issue, too: The Los Angeles Police Department and other agencies will be on the hunt for drunk drivers. With a full moon tonight, they'll be extra wary.
Lucky for you, cops are letting you know roughly where they'll be and when they'll be there. Fair warning. Here's your weekend DUI crackdown information, courtesy of local police.
Tonight from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., extra cops will be on the streets of the LAPD's Central Bureau area, which includes downtown and areas just east, west and south of downtown. Authorities call this a DUI saturation patrol.
