DWI Checkpoint Planned for Jefferson County
The Missouri State Highway Patrol made the announcement in a news release.
A sobriety checkpoint will happen in Jefferson County sometime this month.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol made the announcement in a news release. Captain Ronald S. Johnson, commanding officer of Troop C in Weldon Spring, stated that the highway patrol will work with local law enforcement agencies in conducting the checkpoint.
The exact date and time of the checkpoint isn't available to the public.
"Driving while intoxicated checkpoints are a great tool in removing the intoxicated driver from Missouri's highways," Johnson stated in the news release. "If you suspect a motorist of driving while intoxicated, call the Missouri State Highway Patrol at the toll-free emergency number 1-800-525-5555 or cellular *55."
The last known checkpoints in Jefferson County occurred in February, when the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department held checkpoints in Arnold, Imperial and Eureka.
The Arnold checkpoint resulted in five DWI arrests and seven other arrests on drivers who were operating their vehicles on suspended or revoked licenses.
