You're still hungover from Halloween weekend, we know, but the Los Angeles Police Department and other agencies are like unstoppable zombies when it comes to busting drunk drivers.

They've planned a long weekend of DUI enforcement that actually starts tonight in Koreatown and downtown.

Lucky for you the LAPD believes that warning motorists where they'll be and when they'll be there actually cuts down on DUI dangers because, hopefully, you'll think twice about getting behind the wheel after downing one too many. Here's the 411:

-Tonight from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. the LAPD will have extra patrol cars and motorcycle officers on the streets of its Olympic Division area, which includes most of Koreatown. The department calls this kind of operation a "saturation patrol."

-Tonight from 4 p.m. to midnight a saturation patrol hits the streets of the Central Division, which includes most of what we know as downtown.

-Tonight from 6 p.m. to 3 a.m. Pasadena police will be running a saturation patrol in that city.

-Saturday from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. a checkpoint will be running on Sepulveda Boulevard at Vose Street in scenic Van Nuys.

-Sunday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. football fans should beware and be sober: An LAPD saturation patrol will be looking for DUI drivers in the lovely North Hollywood area.

Be safe.
