Officers screened more than 750 drivers for signs of impairment Saturday night.

Temecula police arrested one driver for suspicion of DUI at a checkpoint Saturday night at Ynez Road and Tower Plaza North Road, according to Sgt. John Magnan.

The checkpoint operated from 9 p.m. until 3 a.m., with officers screening 752 of the 900 vehicles that drove through, according to Magnan. Officers directed 37 vehicles to a secondary-inspection area, where 10 field sobriety tests were given.

The only "terrorists" I see out there ARE the cops.

@JJ - No. I waived no rights when I obtained a Drivers License. Also, the trite statement "it only takes one......" is a retarded argument. It also takes one ticket to win the lottery. That doesn't mean I should expect to be a millionaire.

You have a right to have a lawyer present before uttering a single word to a cop, especially when they are stopping you with NO probable cause!!!" . . Please write a blog about the results when you follow your own advice.

FIGHT FOR NO AMNESTY! City residents and others, you know what you have to do. Emails and phone calls to the council members. No Amnesty. Butt out of Federal immigration law and encourage illegal aliens to get right with the law if they have broken it. Our laws require illegals to exit the country and apply to enter legally if they desire. No one is above the law, although many “Latinos” think that U.S laws don’t apply to them because they claim is Mexico. Wrong answer. Here’s Prof. Armando Navarro speaking at UCR yesterday talking about overthrowing the U.S. These Mexicas are getting bolder as their numbers increase in CA and elsewhere. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKAVbSMT8vY&feature=em-share_video_user http://www.sandiegoreader.com/weblogs/news-ticker/2013/mar/16/immigration-reform-on-the-table-at-a-better-san-di/ Border & Immigration Security Analyst San Diegans for Secure Borders
