Two motorists were arrested for driving under the influence at a checkpoint conducted Friday night through this morning at Newhall Ranch Road and Dickason Drive in Valencia.

Along with the two DUI arrests, seven people were cited for driving without a license and four others were cited for vehicle code violations, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies screened 1.047 of the 1,097 cars that passed through the checkpoint.
The Sheriff’s Department picked the checkpoint location because of previous drunken driving in the area, the news release said.

Funding for the checkpoint came through a grant provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety and Business, Transportation and Housing Agency.
