Lodi police officers arrested five people on suspicion of drunken driving, cited 11 more and had nine vehicles towed during Saturday night’s DUI/driver’s license checkpoint in the 200 block of East Lodi Avenue, according to police Sgt. Chris Jacobson.

Officers screened 478 vehicles and conducted 11 field sobriety tests. Seven unlicensed and suspended drivers were ordered to court, Jacobson said.

The checkpoint was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

    MIZZO, contrary to some opinions, these check points are not conducted to raise revenue. The arrestes, seizures and impounds are not conducted to line the pockets of City agencies. In fact, they would probably be just as pleased if NO arrests, impounds or other misdemeanor violations occured. But as long as there are people out there doing stupid things, disobeying the laws, there will be arrests and fines levied. Like Raymond said, OBEY the laws, NO problem.

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
