A joint sobriety checkpoint over the weekend resulted in two DUI arrests, Sgt. Matthew Hill of the California Highway Patrol reported on Sunday.

Both arrests were made at a checkpoint on Lyons and Peachland in Newhall. Information about both arrests were not made available to the public. No additional drivers were reportedly pulled over, and the number of vehicles that passed through the checkpoint was not yet determined.

The joint sobriety checkpoint, which started shortly after 8 p.m. Friday and ended before 3 a.m. Saturday, was performed by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station and the California Highway Patrol.

Both law enforcement agencies routinely set up sobriety checkpoints in areas where DUI activity is considered to be active. According to both the Sheriff's Station and the Highway Patrol, the checkpoints are aimed at educating the community about the hazards of drunk driving while enforcing state drunk driving laws. The checkpoints also help detect
drunk and unlicensed drivers who are on the road.
