The LAPD continues its emphasis on getting intoxicated drivers off the street, and to aid in that aim is operating a DUI checkpoint tonight from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. at Cahuenga Boulevard West and Broadlawn Drive in North Hollywood. According to the LAPD North Hollywood-area residents logged 181 driving under the influence-related and 1,203 hit and run traffic collisions. While making arrests is one goal of this and other checkpoints, public education is an additional aim, which is why all those passing through the checkpoint will talk with an officer who will explain the purpose of the program. Though you may opt to navigate around this location, the LAPD may have other unannounced checkpoints set up tonight. Be safe!
