Another weekend, another LAPD sobriety and license checkpoint running to help get impaired drivers off the streets and to educate the public. Tonight it's the valley's turn, as the police will be set up on Ventura Boulevard between Columbus Avenue and Noble Avenue in Sherman Oaks from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

If you're driving through the checkpoint area, you can expect to be detained momentarily to speak with an officer who will check for proper licensing, and for signs of alcohol and or drug impairments. If your Friday night involves either of the latter, you'll want to have a designated driver, a bus schedule, or a cab company phone number handy to make sure you aren't one of the people the LAPD are worried about.
