It's Friday, which means the LAPD is out in force. While the department doesn't announce all checkpoints, they do announce some. Those include in Venice at Venice Boulevard and Walgrove Avenue and in Studio City along Ventura Boulevard somewhere between Eureka Drive and Fruitland Drive. Summer months are notoriously known for drinking and driving incidents. Statewide, 7,801 people were either injured or killed during June, July and August in 2008.
