In just over four hours almost 300 drivers went through the safety check. Police weren't just looking for party-goers that took the celebration on the road, they were also checking for valid driver's license and proof of insurance.
During the safety check 70 citations were issued, and 30 written warnings were given. There were also two DUI's and six criminal arrests.
Officers say they don't want to rain on anyone's holiday, but say drivers need to think before they get behind the wheel.
