The Clovis Police Department arrested one person on suspicion of driving under the influence and issued 10 traffic citations Thursday night and Friday morning as part of checkpoint organized by the AVOID the 21 anti-DUI program, an AVOID spokesman said.
AVOID Public Information Officer Alfreda Sebasto said 442 drivers were screened from 8 p.m. Thursday to 2 a.m. Friday. In addition to the DUI arrest, seven people were cited for driving without a license and three were cited for driving with a suspended license.
The AVOID the 21 program brings together law enforcement officers and volunteers to staff checkpoints throughout Fresno and Madera counties. The program is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.
