Officers with the Los Angeles Police Department are cracking down on drunk drivers this holiday weekend with scheduled DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols. Law enforcers say that they're upset with the fact that Memorial Day has become an excuse of many people to drink irresponsibly, so this year the department plans on taking extra steps to reduce the amount of impaired drivers on the road.
LAPD officers are encouraging people to designate sober drivers and avoid driving drunk by setting up DUI checkpoints in Los Angeles and saturation patrols this weekend. Through a press release, LAPD has announced that they'll conduct the following enforcement activities this weekend.
- Friday May 28, 2010: DUI checkpoint in the Northeast Los Angeles area.
- Saturday May 29, 2010: DUI checkpoint in the North Hollywood area.
