The first checkpoint was conducted in the southbound lanes of Ventura Road at Devonshire Drive. The second checkpoint was held in the southbound lanes of Rose Ave at Cesar Chavez Drive.
Officers screened 1,247 motorists who passed through the checkpoint locations and conducted five DUI investigations with drivers who had been drinking alcohol. Officers arrested four drivers for driving under the influence of alcohol and one driver for an outstanding warrant.
Citations were issued to 11 drivers for various drivers’ license violations.
