Many of you question why we publish this information. Cops want us to. They believe that if you know they're going to be out there, maybe you won't drink and drive.
According to the LAPD:
Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.
