Rolando Hazzard, 35, of Lake Elsinore and Glenn Carneron, 74, of British Columbia were the two motorists arrested for driving under the influence when officers had 491 vehicles pass through the checkpoint. Of the 491 vehicles screened, 35 were diverted to a secondary screening area and six people were given field sobriety tests, according to the report.

Thirteen vehicles were stored or impounded for 30 days and 16 drivers were sent to court for licensing violations, according to Sgt. Peter Giannakakos.

The report said the checkpoint  was created  to remove impaired and suspended drivers from the roadway while illustrating the dangers of drunken driving. It was funded through a grant from the  National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
