Sobriety Checkpoint Planned for Sherman Way Friday Night

The Los Angeles Police Department will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Sherman Way Friday night between Lankershim and Laurel Canyon boulevards.

From 8 p.m. to 3 a.m., officers will be inspecting drivers that pass through the checkpoint to see if they are under the influence and if they have a driver's license.

"The purpose of the sobriety checkpoint is to reduce the number of traffic collisions involving intoxicated drivers and hit and run collisions," a statement from the LAPD read. "The checkpoint will educate the community to use designated drivers and not drink and drive. Our message is simple: If we catch you drunk, you will be arrested."

The checkpoint is funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
