DUI Checkpoint in Van Nuys Tonight

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

If you're headed in or out of Van Nuys tonight by car, let the driver beware: The Los Angeles Police Department have announced a sobriety checkpoint to be conducted tonight. The checkpoint will run from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Roscoe Boulevard between Woodley Avenue and Haskell Avenue.

Officers will be checking drivers for proper licensing, as well as for signs of alcohol and or drug impairments. This checkpoint is part of the LAPD's ongoing program to educate motorists about the perils of driving under the influence and to get impaired drivers off the streets.
