One cited on license violation at Sebastopol DUI/license checkpoint

Sebastopol police held a drunken driving checkpoint Saturday night and after checking 1,138 drivers they'd found no one behind the wheel who was drunk, police said.

Officers set up the checkpoint at South Main Street and Palm Avenue near downtown. It was open from about 6:30-10:30 p.m.

Of all the drivers screened another 10 were pulled aside for a more thorough check of alcohol impairment, said traffic Officer David Harston.

One citation was issued, for a person driving despite having a suspended or revoked license.

The cost of operating the checkpoint was covered by a California Office of Traffic Safety grant.
