The LAPD is continuing to send the message to drivers across the city that drinking and driving has serious consequences. As part of their ongoing effort to educate the public, tere will be at least one DUI checkpoint tonight, located in the San Fernando Valley in Panorama City on Van Nuys Boulevard between Osborne Street and Nordhoff Street, and it will run from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

If your night out includes drinking, designate a driver, take a cab, or ride the Metro. The LAPD does not have to announce all checkpoints, so there could be more out there.

The LAPD say these checkpoints are a proven enforcement tool effective in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes, as well as being a valuable means for heightening awareness of the dangers of impaired driving.
