The Los Angeles Police Department will be conducting a Sobriety/Driver’s License checkpoint tonight as part of their ongoing campaign to remove dangerous drivers from the roads and educate the public on safety risks of driving under the influence. The checkpoint will be held from 8 p.m. tonight to 2 a.m. Saturday, June 4 at Roscoe Boulevard and Haskell Avenue in North Hills.

At the checkpoint they will be looking for proper licensing and signs of alcohol and or drug impairment.

The LAPD regularly operate checkpoints as a means of heightening awareness of the dangers of impaired driving, and to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes. The LAPD does not to publicize all their checkpoints, and may operate additional checkpoints this weekend.

If you're heading out tonight anywhere and plan to drink, be sure to have a designated driver, take public transit, or be prepared to call a cab. Be safe!
