Two DUI/license checkpoints Friday night in Petaluma screened 987 drivers, but police didn’t find any suspected DUIs.
But Petaluma police said they did arrest three drivers on suspicion of driving without a license, and two others on suspicion of driving on a suspended license. One of those two also was cited for having false registration stickers on her car.
The first checkpoint was on Sonoma Mountain Parkway and then later in the evening the officers moved to Petaluma Boulevard North at Gossage Avenue.
The checkpoints were funded by a grant from the state Office of Traffic Safety.
Such checkpoints may have to change if Gov. Jerry Brown signs a bill by Assemblyman Michael Allen, D-Santa Rosa, which would set uniform rules for checkpoints statewide and would require public notice of their locations. To read more about that, CLICK HERE.
