Police Setting Up Trio of DUI Checkpoints

The Los Angeles Police Department plans three checkpoints Saturday to get motorists to stay sober and arrest those who don't, authorities said.

Sobriety and Driver's License Checkpoints are planned at intersections in North Hollywood, Mission Hills and Boyle Heights, according to the LAPD.

Officers will conduct a DUI checkpoint from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. Sunday at Van Owen Street and Rhodes Avenue in North Hollywood, and from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Rinaldi Street at Laurel Canyon Boulevard in Mission Hills and Cesar Chavez Avenue at Evergreen Avenue in Boyle Heights, police said.

Officers will look for drivers who appear impaired by alcohol, prescription drugs or marijuana, police said.

Inglewood police will conduct saturation patrols from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. with extra officers patrolling the streets watching for impaired drivers.

The DUI operations are funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
