Santa Rosa police to set up DUI checkpoint Friday
Santa Rosa police will conduct a DUI and driver’s license checkpoint at an undisclosed location Friday from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m.
Officers plan to stop every vehicle passing through the checkpoint looking for valid driver’s licenses and signs of impaired driving, police said.
The operation is part of a California Office of Traffic Safety funded effort to crack down on drunken and drugged driving during the holiday season.
A single driving-under-the-influence arrest can exceed $15,000 in court costs, fees and DUI classes, Santa Rosa police said in a statement.
