If one of the spookiest things you'll ever see on Halloween is a black-and-white patrol car in your rear view, than you know you should probably take a cab home from your fright-night festivities.

Because the LAPD will be on big time party-blocker patrol this weekend, and the guys and girls in blue aren't carrying fake guns. And, no, telling officers you're in character as Andy Dick probably won't get you off.

So here's your handy-dandy guide to the LAPD's Halloween DUI checkpoints:

Friday: Ventura Boulevard and Columbus Avenue from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. in Sherman Oaks. Map.

Saturday: Hollywood Boulevard and Gower Street from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. in Hollywood. Map.

Sunday: “DUI saturation patrol” in the LAPD's Harbor Area (San Pedro, Wilmington and Harbor Gateway) from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Have fun.
