1,021 drivers stopped at Burbank DUI checkpoint; 0 were drunk
A sobriety checkpoint in Burbank on Saturday that screened 1,021 drivers yielded zero arrests, police reported.
Burbank police were stationed at Glenoaks Boulevard just north of Alameda Avenue from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., during which time six drivers were detained for field sobriety tests, said police Sgt. Darin Ryburn. None were arrested.
Two citations were issued – one for a driving infraction and another for driving without a license.
The Burbank Police Department last year received a $31,500 grant through the California Office of Traffic Safety to conduct sobriety checkpoints through September.
