Officers did not catch any intoxicated drivers during a driver’s license and sobriety checkpoint in Palm Springs, though two suspects were arrested for other unspecified crimes, police said Sunday.
Palm Springs police conducted the checkpoint between 10 p.m. Friday and 2 a.m. Saturday in the 2900 block of North Indian Canyon Way.
Of the 426 drivers screened, two suspects were arrested for unspecified crimes and four people were either cited or arrested for driving unlicensed or with a suspended license, police said.
In addition, five citations were issued for various other vehicle code violations.
The checkpoint was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
“DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Last year the Palm Springs Police Department investigated 93 DUI collisions that killed 10 people and injured 71 others,” police said.
