It's Friday, which means there's an LAPD DUI Checkpoint somewhere in the city. Tonight is the Cahuenga Pass neighborhood, which most refer to as Universal City.

From 8 p.m. to 3 a.m., police will hold a sobriety and drivers license checkpoint at Cahuenga Blvd. and West Broadlawn Ave, which is located in the North Hollywood Division where 33 driving under the influence-related and 187 hit and run traffic collisions have occurred so far this year.

A recent study has brewed controversy over these checkpoints, which can be explained here.
