The LAPD is prepared to make this your least favorite month of all time. It has weekend DUI checkpoints ready for you in Koreatown, South L.A. and Sherman Oaks — starting tonight:

Tonight a DUI checkpoint will be operating at South Vermont Avenue and West Sixth Street from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Try to get through the month without killing somebody, harming yourself, or getting a dreaded DUI. April awaits …
