DUI Checkpoint In Newhall Comes Up Dry

By Leon Worden /

Nobody was arrested for driving under the influence at a Friday night DUI and driver’s license checkpoint in Newhall.

A total of 953 vehicles were screened at the checkpoint, which ran from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Lyons Avenue and Wheeler Road.

The result wasn’t terribly abnormal; usually just one or two arrests are made per 1,000 vehicles at local DUI checkpoints, which are funded by the state office of traffic safety.

License checks also yielded results within norms. Five drivers were cited for driving with a suspended license – a violation of a court order – and had their cars impounded for 30 days.

Another six individuals were cited for driving without a license and didn’t have their cars towed, thanks to a new state law that bars police agencies from impounding unlicensed drivers’ cars at DUI checkpoints. (But only at checkpoints. Anywhere else, police officers still can impound unlicensed drivers’ cars for 30 days.)

Another nine drivers were cited for various vehicle code violations at Friday’s checkpoint.
