More than 750 vehicles were screened from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 31, during a Murrieta Police Department DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on Margarita and Torrey Pines roads.

Of the 758 vehicles screened, nobody was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, but one person was arrested for warrants and six drivers were cited or arrested for operating a vehicle unlicensed or while suspended or revoked.

The Murrieta Police said 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.”

The Murrieta Police Department will be conducting more DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint or DUI Saturation Patrols in the near future as part of its ongoing commitment to lowering deaths and injuries on streets and highways.

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