Yeah, as things warm up out there, the heat is on. The LAPD, the L.A. County Sheriff's Department and Long Beach police have a bunch of DUI checkpoints waiting for you this weekend.
They want you to know about them in hopes that maybe you'll avoid drinking and driving altogether. Here's your drunk-driver checkpoint cheat sheet for the weekend:
-The LAPD will operate a checkpoint from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Hyperion Avenue and Scotland Street in Silver Lake.
-From 8 p.m. to 2 p.m. there will be a checkpoint at Figueroa and Ninth streets downtown.
-From 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. there will be a DUI "saturation patrol" throughout the LAPD's Hollywood Division area.
-From 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. there will be an L.A. County Sheriff's Department checkpoint somewhere in the city of Carson (they're not telling us exactly where).
