A DUI checkpoint was conducted in Beverly Hills with no arrests reported, police said Thursday.

The checkpoint occurred March 17 between 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. at North Santa Monica Boulevard and Crescent Drive, where a total of 1,300 vehicle passed through and 427 were screened, Beverly Hills Police Department Lt. Reginald Evans said. No arrests were made during the operation.

Checkpoint locations are determined based on reports of impaired driving-related crashes, Evans said. The primary purpose of the DUI checkpoints is to promote public safety, targeting impaired drivers and taking them off the road, he said.

The next checkpoint is scheduled for September. Detectives have not yet determined an exact date or location.
