ESCONDIDO (CNS) - Four suspected drunken drivers were arrested at a checkpoint in Escondido, a police lieutenant said Sunday.
About 1,265 drivers passed through the checkpoint near Centre City Parkway and Decatur Way Saturday night, Escondido police Lt. Tom Albergo said.
In addition to the four arrested for suspicion of drunken driving, officers cited 18 unlicensed drivers, five without insurance and three with a suspended license, Albergo said. Nine vehicles were impounded.
Officers also passed out educational material on the costs associated with a drunken driving arrest, the lieutenant said.
Officers were also assigned to a roving patrol throughout the city until 3 a.m., he said.
The operation was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
