The Los Angeles Police Department's Crime Task Force/Driving Under the Influence Enforcement Detail have their sights set on the Harbor area tonight, and will be running a sobriety and license checkpoint to further the goal of educating the public and getting intoxicated drivers off the road.

The checkpoint will be on Figueroa Street between 41st Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and is scheduled to run 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.

The LAPD says the Harbor Division alone experienced 97 Driving Under the Influence-related traffic collisions during 2010. As always, if your plans include drinking, be sure to designate a driver, take a taxi, or use public transit.
