Two arrests were made and several citations issued Saturday during a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint conducted by the Murrieta Police Department.

The checkpoint was conducted on Margarita Road at Torrey Pines between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m. 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.

A total of 740 vehicles drove through the checkpoint and of those, 618 were screened. One driver was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. A passenger in one of the screened cars was arrested for public intoxication. Four drivers were cited for driving on a suspended drivers license and several were cited for driving without a drivers license. A total of four cars were towed from the checkpoint.

Murrieta PD will continue conducting DUI/Drivers License Checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols in an ongoing commitment to lowering deaths and injuries upon local streets and highways.
