Drinking & DrivingWhat does it take to get a DUI? Well, take your precautions this weekend and each time you drive. Additionally, the Daily News has published Sobriety (“DUI”) checkpoints for the Los Angeles Police Department for Labor Day Weekend:

Friday, September 2, 2011 Sobriety Checkpoint from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

– Venice Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue in Wilshire Area
– Topanga Boulevard and Califa Street in Topanga Area

Saturday, September 3, 2011 – Sobriety Checkpoint from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

  • Venice Boulevard and Lincoln Boulevard in Pacific Area
  • Western Avenue and Slauson Avenue in 77th Street Area
  • Figueroa Street and 9th Street in Central Area

Sunday, September 4, 2011 – Sobriety Checkpoint from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.

  • Harbor Boulevard and 1st Street in Harbor Area

If you’re going to be drinking, please plan accordingly. Remember, the police are looking for “impared” driving or “driving under the influence” — litterally. Buzzed driving is going to get you in just as much trouble.

    Here in Indianapolis law enforcement also will announce checkpoint locations ahead of time and it doesn’t seem to make a difference. They still arrest just as many impaired drivers.

      True here, too, Jeff. I don’t think most people 1) look to find out where they are set up; 2) think they are impaired. It takes so little to get nabbed. Most of them also OR, unless there is a high BAC, accident or priors.

    I don’t see any announced checkpoints out in Las Vegas either. But doesn’t announcing them kind of defeat the point anyway? And yes the OR everyone out here unless you cause a 7 car pile-up or start a police chase.

    Expect the unexpected. For sure more drivers are driving while intoxicated on that day.
