As part of Goleta’s commitment to public safety, Goleta police conducted a sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint last Friday. The checkpoint was held between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m. on southbound Storke Road north of Hollister Avenue in Goleta.

This operation was one of many that have or will be conducted throughout the year in Goleta.

Here are the results of the checkpoint:

» Vehicles screened — 1,239
» DUI arrests — 2
» Felony arrest — 1
» Driving without a valid driver’s license — 8
» Driving on a suspended driver’s license — 1
» Vehicles impounded for 30 days — 3
» Vehicles impounded for one day — 2
» Criminal citations — 2
» Miscellaneous traffic citations — 4
» Driver’s evaluated for DUI (alcohol/drugs) — 26 (determined to be not impaired)

Two Goleta men, ages 34 and 36, were arrested on suspicion of DUI. A 32-year-old Goleta was arrested on charges of felony impersonation of another and driving without a valid driver’s license.

The checkpoint was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The City of Goleta contracts with the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department for police services.
