What are those cops doing at Echo Park & Sunset?

They are looking for drunk drivers as part of a sobriety check point that will be set up tonight in the wake of numerous DUIs and hundreds of hit-and-run accidents in the LAPD Northeast Divison, reports LAist. Tonight's check point is designed to help reduce alcohol-related accidents, said the LAPD in a statement.:

"During this year, residents residing in the Northeast Area have endured 80 driving under the influence-related and 792 hit and run traffic collisions. The checkpoint will educate the community to use designated drivers and not drink and drive."
