Today on Giving Tuesday, we need you.
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all today on Giving Tuesday. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls AND will be matched dollar-for-dollar! Let your support for reliable local reporting be amplified by this special matching opportunity. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Whether you're cheering on the Patriots or Seahawks this Super Bowl weekend, keep in mind that you might want to think twice before getting behind the wheel after throwing back a few brewskies. Police will be cracking down on inebriated drivers all weekend long throughout L.A.

While some people think that releasing DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols allow drunk drivers to get away with their dangerous choices, research shows that publicizing these checkpoints actually helps reduce the number of drunk drivers on the road.

So, if you're planning on drinking, take public transportation or get a ride from a cab or ride-sharing service. AAA is also offering their Tipsy Tow service on Sunday, Feb. 1 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., where you can get your car towed home for free for up to seven miles. All you have to do is call 1-800-400-4AAA and say to the operator, "I need a Tipsy Tow."

Here are the DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols this weekend:
