Midsummer DUI Crackdown Happens Tonight
If your midsummer night's dream doesn't involve sharing a jail cell with some surly characters, then heed this warning: A misdemeanor night's dream is really a nightmare.
Los Angeles Police and other agencies will be on the lookout this weekend for drunk drivers. Luckily they're giving us some warning regarding their whereabouts.
Now, pretty much every time we publish one of these DUI checkpoint lists, multiple people respond that we're helping out the bad guys. Let's get this straight: Cops want you to know they're out there. That way maybe you'll think twice about getting behind the wheel after one too many.
