Two people were arrested during Saturday night’s DUI checkpoint in the 200 block of East Lodi Avenue, according to Lodi police Sgt. David Griffin.
Officers screened 262 vehicles between 7 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. One was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, while the other is suspected of being drug impaired, Griffin said.
Additionally, three drivers were cited for operating a vehicle while being unlicensed or having a suspended or revoked license.
Officers will conduct a DUI saturation patrol on Friday in an effort to lower deaths and injuries.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies while yielding a cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent.
The checkpoint was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The public can report suspected drunken drivers by calling 911.
