A third driver was arrested for not properly registering as sex offender for the past decade, sheriff’s officials said.

The identities of the arrested drivers were not disclosed.

Another 28 drivers were issued citations for being unlicensed or driving with a suspended/revoked license, according to the sheriff’s department.
