Two arrests for alleged drug possession were made during a six-hour DUI/driver license checkpoint that ended early Saturday morning in Otay Ranch, according to Chula Vista Police.
Ten drivers were given a field sobriety test and one driver was given a drug evaluation, but no one was arrested for drunk driving.
The checkpoint was set up on Olympic Parkway near Otay Ranch High School from 6 p.m. Friday until 2 a.m. this morning, Lt. Dan Peak said.
Of the 1,877 vehicles that went through the checkpoint, 1,150 were screened by officers and 11 were impounded. Of the 57 citations issued to drivers, 17 were for unlicensed driving and seven were for driving on a suspended license.
That stretch of roadway was selected because it is a known problem area for speeding, according to Peak.
