San Diego County Sheriff‘s deputies arrested two drivers on DUI charges and issued 30 citations for other violations at a checkpoint Friday night in San Marcos.

A total of 1,415 vehicles passed through the checkpoint in the 1600 block of San Elijo Road and 35 were sent for further evaluation.

Two drivers were arrested on suspicion of DUI, four vehicles were impounded and 30 citations were issued for other violations, mostly driving without a proper license.

“Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for deputies and the public,” the sheriff’s department said in a statement on Saturday morning.
