Six drivers were arrested on suspicion of drunken driving during an overnight sobriety and license checkpoint in downtown San Diego’s East Village neighborhood, authorities reported Sunday.

Six vehicles were impounded, and one driver was cited for operating a vehicle without proper licensing, said Officer Anthony Obregon of the San Diego Police Department.

Obregon said 1,478 vehicles passed through the checkpoint at 1400 G Street near the entrance to the Route 94 freeway.

The checkpoint, which was announced in advance, opened at 10:25 p.m. Saturday and concluded at 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

A DUI arrest can result in jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, and other expenses that can exceed $13,500.
