Thanks to a 27% uptick in DUI related traffic collisions within the LAPD's 77th Division, which covers Hyde Park, Gramercy Park and other South L.A. neighoborhoods, a DUI and drivers license checkpoint will be set up tonight. From 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., the checkpoint will be found on Slauson Avenue between Western Avenue and Denker Avenue, which is between the Cantebury Knolls and Chesterfield Square neighborhoods.
