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.
