A DUI and drivers license checkpoint held Saturday night on south Madera Avenue near Gary Lane netted three drivers under the influence of alcohol and a man who was wanted on outstanding warrants, according to the California Highway Patrol. Four drivers were cited for driving without licenses and released.

The checkpoint screened a total of 334 vehicles and was jointly operated by The California Highway Patrol and The Madera Police Department, with a grant from the National Transportation and Safety Board.

The first DUI driver nearly plowed through the checkpoint when she failed to notice and slow down, and stop for officers.
