Nearly 2,100 vehicles passed through the checkpoint near Ash Street and El Norte Parkway, and 999 of them were screened, Lt. Justin Murphy said in a statement.

Although officers did not make any suspected drunken driving arrests, they ticketed 14 unlicensed drivers, 12 without insurance and five with suspended licenses, Murphy said. Educational material was also passed out, he said.
