Petaluma Police Holding DUI/DL Checkpoints

The operations will be held at unspecified locations this weekend.

The Petaluma Police Department will hold two DUI and driver's license checkpoints this weekend.

The checkpoints will be held at unspecified locations between between 5 p.m. Friday night and 3 a.m. Saturday morning, police Sgt. Ken Savano said.

The operations aim to raise awareness of the threat impaired drivers pose, Savano said.

Penalties for impaired driving include jail sentences, and license suspensions, insurance-rate hikes, and fines and fees that can exceed $10,000.

Funding for these operations has been provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
