The holiday weekend continues and the LAPD keeps setting up DUI Checkpoints in an attempt to discourage everyone from drinking and driving. There have been less fatal accidents since New Year's Eve, but more DUI arrest, reports the California Highway Patrol. Tonight, there will be one checkpoint located near the Staples Center because of a high occurrence of DUI related incidents in the last three months, explains the LAPD in a press release. The police do not have to announce checkpoints in advance to the media or public, so there could be more out there. Stay safe!
