​It goes without saying that fuzz is gonna be hitting Valley streets en masse tonight, enforcing our states fearsome DUI laws and hunting down anyone who's idiotic enough to get behind the wheel after a couple of drinks at local bars and clubs tonight.

(It even brings to mind Ernie Hudson's humorous line from The Crow: "So many cops, you'd think they givin' away donuts!")

Unless you're the sort of foolhardy daredevil who enjoys risking the lives of both yourself and others -- not to mention a very expensive trip to the Fourth Avenue Jail in downtown Phoenix -- check out the following suggestions on how to get home safely tonight without incident.

(And forget about relying on the Twittersphere to determine where the checkpoints are, as not even the most instantaneous Tweets can keep up with every single po-po on the road.)
