FAIRFIELD — California Highway Patrol officers arrested one person on suspicion of driving under the influence after they screened hundreds of vehicles at a checkpoint in Fairfield, Saturday.
The Solano County CHP conducted a DUI/driver’s license checkpoint on Manuel Campos Parkway, just east of Interstate 80. Officers screened 480 vehicles and conducted 13 DUI investigations, which include Field Sobriety Tests, according to a CHP press release.
Officers also issued six citations for miscellaneous violations. CHP said three motorists entered the checkpoint without a driver’s license and another motorist was driving on a suspended license. Officers cited the unlicensed drivers and allowed them to have licensed drivers take possession of the vehicles. CHP impounded the vehicle of the motorist driving on a suspended license.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
