The Los Angeles Police Department will be conducting a Sobriety Checkpoint tonight in Studio City as part of their ongoing campaign to educate the public about the perils of driving under the influence and to remove dangerous drivers from the streets. The checkpoint will be running tonight from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Ventura Boulevard between Coldwater Canyon Avenue and Fairway Avenue.

Of their checkpoint campaign, the LAPD say: "Sobriety 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."

At the checkpoint they will be looking for proper licensing, and will conduct field sobriety tests for anyone suspected of being under the influence. They say "if you fail, expect jail."
