The LAPD will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. tonight on Topanga Canyon Boulevard between Califa Street and Marylee Street in Woodland Hills. "During this year, residents residing in the Topanga Area endured 19 driving under the influence-related and 99 hit and run traffic collisions," explains an LAPD release. As always, the goal of these operations is not to give intoxicated drivers the chance to plan a detour, but rather to "educate the community to use designated drivers and not drink and drive."
