The LAPD's weekly weekend presence on the streets to deter drunk driving will be no stranger in 2010. Tonight, a DUI Checkpoint will be located in the Hollywood area at Fairfax and Melrose from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. Last year, the surrounding area experienced, 120 driving under the influence-related and 1,185 hit and run traffic collisions. As noted by LAPD Chief Charlie Beck in an interview with LAist, the department is under no legal pretense to announce checkpoints to the public. That means other checkpoints could be out there, or maybe not. Stay safe, everyone!
