The LAPD is setting up two sobriety & drivers license checkpoints this weekend. As always, just don't drink and drive and you'll be fine. Between 8:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. tonight, police will set a checkpoint up on Figueroa Street between 8th and 9th streets. Tomorrow in Cahuenga Pass between Hollywood and the Universal City area, a checkpoint will be set up at Cahuenga Boulevard West and Broadlawn Drive between 8:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.

The locations were chosen based on the number of incidents since the beginning of the year. In downtown, Central Division is reporting 44 driving under the influence-related and 518 hit and run traffic collisions. The North Hollywood Division has endured 148 driving under the influence-related and 951 hit and run traffic collisions.

Both checkpoints run near Metro Red Line stations.
