Cinco de Mayo Drunk Patrol in Full Effect Tonight Through The Weekend, Says LAPD - Los Angeles News - The Informer
The LAPD will be out in force, and there's nothing they'd rather do than bust idiots in sombreros. Here's the 411:
-They've got a DUI saturation patrol in "Northeast" (Los Feliz, East Hollywood, Highland Park, Eagle Rock, etc.) set for tonight. That's Cinco Eve to you hardcore celebrants.
-Then the cops hit the Foothill area (Pacoima, Sun Valley, Panorama City ... ) on Cinco proper. That's Thursday.
-Ah, but the weekend has just begun: On Friday it's DUI checkpoint time in Hollywood at Sunset Boulevard and Genesee Avenue from 7 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Finally, on Saturday the department gives us another checkpoint, this one at Sherman Way and Kelvin Avenue in Canoga Park from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m.
Ay, Dios mio.
