Summer officially arrives in a few days. And a heat wave is going to bake this town like a fat bag of sour diesel.
Party people will be out in droves this weekend. And so will cops. Starting tonight.
The Los Angeles Police Department and other agencies are letting you know that if they catch you driving after one too many, you're going to jail. Luckily they're telling us where they'll be and when they'll be there. Here's the info, according to authorities:
-Tonight from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. a DUI checkpoint will be awaiting your arrival in the heart of party town, Hollywood, at Sunset Boulevard and Orange Grove Avenue.
-Tonight from 6 p.m. to midnight L.A. Sheriff's Department deputies will be operating a checkpoint at an undisclosed location in Norwalk.
-Tonight from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. the sheriff's department will have a checkpoint waiting for you at an undisclosed location in Lancaster.
-Tomorrow from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. the boys and girls in blue will be running a checkpoint on Ventura Boulevard at Colubus Avenue in Sherman Oaks.
-Sunday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. extra police will be patrolling the streets of North Hollywood. The LAPD calls this kind of drunk-driver hunt a saturation patrol.
Stay cool. Be safe.
