Burbank police to conduct DUI checkpoint

Burbank police will be on the lookout for drunk drivers Saturday with plans to conduct a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location.

During the last checkpoint in Burbank in December, police screened 803 drivers, but not one was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The Burbank Police Department last year received a $31,500 grant through the California Office of Traffic Safety to conduct sobriety checkpoints through September.
