In the days leading up to back to school, Lower Moreland Police stopped 605 cars traveling at the intersection of Byberry Road and Huntingdon Pike as part of a DUI checkpoint.
Of those, 33 drivers were tested. Five were arrested for Driving Under the Influence of alcohol; six were arrested for Driving Under the Influence of drugs; and two motorists were cited for having open containers, according to Sgt. David Scirrotto.
The checkpoint, which was largely funded through state grants, was carried out Aug. 30 into Aug. 31.
Besides DUIs, Scirrotto said three citations were issued for disorderly conduct-drugs, as well as two misdemeanor drug arrests, four felony drug arrests and one citation for a suspended license.
Twenty-five verbal warnings were issued for seatbelts; seven for inspections; three for headlights; and three for required child seats.
