Columbia Police conducted a vehicle safety checkpoint Thursday afternoon.


The Columbia Police Department set up a driver safety checkpoint Thursday afternoon on Derby Ridge at Typhoon Court.

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.
