Burbank police to conduct DUI checkpoint Saturday

Burbank police will conduct a sobriety checkpoint Saturday at an undisclosed location in the city.

The grant-funded checkpoint will run from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. and is aimed at reducing the number of fatalities and serious injuries as a result of motorists who were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, according to police.

Burbank police said all vehicles that pass through the checkpoint may be stopped and drivers may be checked for signs of DUI.

Police advised residents to call 911 if they see a motorist who appears to be driving under the influence.

Burbank police also received a $31,500 grant this week from the California Office of Traffic Safety to fund other DUI checkpoints, according to Chris Cochran, the agency’s spokesman.
