CHP officers will operate a Sonoma County DUI checkpoint Friday night.

The state law enforcement agency will run the checkpoint from 6 p.m. to midnight. The location won’t be released in advance, but it will be along a county roadway where traffic violations have occurred.

Such checkpoints involve stopping hundreds of drivers to check for valid driver’s licenses and whether drivers are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Typically, several people get cited at law enforcement checkpoints for not having a valid license, and a few get arrested on suspicion of DUI.

Various Sonoma County law agencies hold checkpoints throughout the year, often during holidays.

You can reach Staff Writer Randi Rossmann at 707‑521-5412 or randi.rossmann@pressdemocrat.com. On Twitter@rossmannreport.
