Hey Super Bowl fans, don't get too crazy and start driving this weekend. The LAPD will setting up sobriety checkpoints Friday and Saturday nights, culminating in a DUI saturation patrol on Sunday. In an unusual move, the department did not announce any of the checkpoint's locations. On New Year's Eve, Chief Charlie Beck told LAist he supports the publication of locations, but said the department doesn't always have to. "I think that the publicity surrounding these things is so important that if you give a couple of locations, that's fine," he said. Stay safe and sober out there!
