Police arrested 10 people and towed seven vehicles at two DUI checkpoints that ended early Sunday morning in Petaluma, according to police. Of the 10 drivers arrested, police said two were for DUI, two for driving on a suspended license and five for driving without a license. The first checkpoint lasted from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday on westbound East Washington Street at Grey Circle. The second lasted from 10 p.m. Saturday to 2:30 a.m. Sunday on northbound Petaluma Boulevard North at
Gossage Avenue. A total of 1,386 vehicles passed through the checkpoints, and officers screened 1,246 of them for DUI, according to police. The checkpoints were part of a Labor Day drunken driving campaign in Sonoma County that will continue through September 7. Police said there will be more checkpoints over the next two weeks, as well as DUI saturation patrols, probation checks and warrants for offenders who don’t show up for their scheduled court dates.
