FYI: Police Checkpoint on Detroit Avenue in Lakewood Tonight

In the interest of journalistic excellence and, ahem, public service: Hey! There's gonna be a police checkpoint on Detroit Avenue in Lakewood tonight.

The red-and-blue lights will flash from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. tonight at the corner of Northland and Detroit.

This is more of a reminder of public safety than a PSA to avoid Detroit at all costs, though take it as you will. The Ohio State Highway Patrol adds this missive, which stands all night, every night: "If you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before you drink. Don't let another life be lost for the senseless and selfish act of getting behind the wheel impaired."

Another bit o' advice from your pals at Scene: Friends don't let friends drink shitty beer. PLEASE bear that in mind all night, every night.

Be safe and Godspeed, you crazy bastards.
