Napa County Law Enforcement Officers conducted a DUI and Driver’s License Checkpoint on Aug. 16.
The officers were participating in the AVOID the 9 which is a grant funded by OTS.
Eight officers and two community service officers worked this operation from 6 p.m.-12 am. During the
operation, 430 vehicles passed through the checkpoint. This resulted in seven drivers
being evaluated for driving under the influence of alcohol. Subsequently, one
of these drivers was arrested for DUI.
Additionally, four motorists were driving with a suspended license and their vehicles were towed and impounded for 30 days. Ten other drivers were cited for driving without a valid driver’s license.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
