DUI Checkpoints Through This Weekend
Wanna top off your summer with some flaming margaritas? Well, get a designated driver or call Uber because you my friend might be one of the people added to the 568 people arrested for drunk driving last weekend.
The Los Angeles police department is cracking down on drunk driving in an end of summer push and that means way more DUI checkpoints than usual.
LAist has provided us with a list of where they will be starting Thursday and throughout the weekend–which doesn’t mean you can drink and drive past them! Just don’t drink and drive at all. It’s really so you, the sober driver, don’t get stuck in a long line of traffic.
