Lodi police screened 766 vehicles during Saturday night’s DUI/driver’s license checkpoint, but there were no arrests.
However, 14 drivers were cited for driving an unlicensed vehicle, and three others were cited for driving with a suspended or revoked license, according to Lodi police Sgt. Shad Canestrino. One vehicle was towed away.
The checkpoint was held from 7 p.m. Saturday to 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the 200 block of East Kettleman Lane.
Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public, Canestrino said.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies while also yielding a cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent, he added.
