On November 19, 2011 the Escondido Police Department conducted a DUI Sobriety / Drivers License Checkpoint in the area of Grand Avenue and Spruce Street. Over 1,200 drivers, and their passengers, were provided educational material concerning the costs associated with a DUI arrest. There were no arrests made during the checkpoint.  After the checkpoint closed, additional officers went on roving patrol looking for impaired drivers. One arrest was made during that portion of the sobriety enforcement detail. That person, an unlicensed driver, was also charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.  Following are other  results of this event:

 

  •  1632 vehicles drove through the checkpoint.
  •  1238 vehicles were screened in primary.

  • 4 field sobriety tests were administered during the checkpoint.
  • 13 vehicles were impounded, 4 drivers had a suspended driver’s license and 10 drivers did not have a driver’s license.
