7 Placer County Law Enforcement Agencies have come together with a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety to conduct saturation patrols and DUI check points beginning last weekend through the Labor Day weekend. Auburn Police Officer and drug recognition expert Chris Forman is managing the grant and tells drivers the reason for the check point as they pass through the cones on Plaza Drive in Rocklin Saturday night.
The check point not only looks for drunk drivers, on Saturday night officers also detained a man for an outstanding 20 thousand dollar warrant.
Officers took drivers seriously when they said they had a drink prior to driving and conducted sobriety tests on the line.
The checkpoint was set up at 8pm, 698 cars began to be screened shortly before 9pm. By 1 am officers had made one DUI arrest, gave 13 citations for various violations and made one arrest warrant.
