The Bakersfield Police Department arrested two people on Friday night during a DUI checkpoint.

The checkpoint was held on the 1400 block of Union Avenue from 6 p.m. through 2 in the morning.

During that time officers screened more than 1300 vehicles, cited 90 drivers for driving on a suspended license or having no license, and detained 8 drivers to determine their sobriety level.

The BPD would like to keep the roadways safe and ask that anyone who thinks they spot a DUI driver call 911.
