Halloween Weekend DUI Checkpoints Start Tonight
No totally awesome Halloween costume—not Elsa nor Ebola—will protect you from the long arm of the law if you're pulled over while under the influence.
We've said it before, but it's worth repeating: There's nothing quite as scary as seeing red and blue lights in your rear-view mirror after a night on the town.
Lucky for you the Los Angeles Police Department and other agencies are giving you a heads up about where and when they'll be on the hunt for DUI suspects for fright night and beyond. Here's the 411:
-Tonight from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. the LAPD will have a DUI checkpoint awaiting your arrival on Vermont Avenue at Fifth Street in lovely Koreatown.
-Saturday from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. an LAPD checkpoint will be running on Olympic Boulevard at Blaine Street near Staples Center.
