The Columbia Police Department set up a driver safety checkpoint Thursday afternoon on Derby Ridge at Typhoon Court.
The goal of the exercise was to increase safety and identify and cite those drivers who are unlicensed, driving with a suspended or revoked license, and driving while uninsured.
Police also looked for child restraint violations, seat belt violations, and any other visible violations.
1 person was cited for driving without a license, 5 tickets and 7 warnings were issued to drivers for failing to keep up-to-date insurance.
Police also ticketed 14 people for not wearing seatbelts.
4 people were cited for driving on a suspended license, 1 for an unlicensed vehicle, 3 for child restraint violations, and 1 person was arrested on a warrant for no valid driver's license.
211 vehicles were checked during the exercise.
