Sonoma County DUI checkpoint set for Friday night

Sonoma County law enforcement agencies will beef up DUI enforcement over the long holiday weekend, including a CHP checkpoint Friday night.

Also, the CHP will add officers to watch for impaired drivers from 6 p.m. Wednesday to midnight Sunday. Extra Santa Rosa officers will be on duty starting Thursday.

CHP officials don’t release the checkpoint location, but wanted to alert drivers that officers will be out in force on the Independence Day holiday weekend to deter impaired driving. Officers will be set up on a roadway that’s had repeat drunken driving issues, said CHP Capt. Ari Wolfe, who commands the Santa Rosa CHP jurisdiction.

The Friday checkpoint will run from 6 p.m. to midnight. Officers also will check for a valid driver’s license.
