Santa Rosa police officers arrested four motorists on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol at a checkpoint that operated from Friday night into early Saturday.

Authorities held the checkpoint at Guerneville Road near Ridley Avenue between 7:30 p.m. and 2 a.m.

Police cited or arrested 22 drivers suspected of operating a vehicle unlicensed or having a suspended or revoked license. Three people were arrested on outstanding warrants and another two additional arrests were made, police said.

The Santa Rosa Police Department periodically conducts DUI checkpoints in an effort to curb drunken driving. In 2018, the department investigated more than 700 such cases, which included about 100 alcohol-involved car collisions that injured at least 60 people.

A grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, provided funding for the checkpoint.
