•    20 DWI charges;
•    3 charges of driving without a license;
•    3 charges of driving while license revoked;
•    2 charges for having open containers of alcoholic beverages;
•    2 charges for not having children properly restrained in vehicles;

Despite the number of DWI charges, officers noticed that a significant number of the vehicles that passed through the checking station were driven by designated drivers.
