Year-to-date in Burbank, there have been 522 DUI arrests, up from 386 arrests during the same period last year, said Burbank Police Lt. Jay Hawver.
However, alcohol- or drug-related collisions are down from last year, which officials attribute to community education efforts and stepped-up enforcement.
There have been 67 alcohol- or drug-related collisions so far this year, down from 107 crashes during the same period last year, Hawver said.
In August, a sobriety checkpoint in Burbank yielded four arrests — three for driving under the influence — and 11 citations, police reported.
Police screened 1,262 motorists passing through the checkpoint, which was held at the intersection of Olive Avenue and Kenwood Street.
