Deputies Plan DUI Checkpoint

KSAL Staff - June 11, 2014 9:43 am

Investigators from the Saline County Sheriff's Office want to speak with two people as an investigation into a fatal hit and run accident continues.

The Saline County Sheriff’s office is planning to crack down on drunk drivers this weekend.

According to the agency, as part of the Kansas Department of Transportation’s Impaired Driving Deterrence Program, deputies will be conducting a checkpoint.

This checkpoint is designed to identify intoxicated drivers. Those motorists suspected of intoxication will be given on-site field sobriety tests.

Efforts will be made not to severely interrupt traffic flow, but many drivers will be stopped as a part of this program.

The checkpoint will be held late Friday into early Saturday.

If you are going to drink and drive doit on the dirt roads. The sheriff’s department stays away from doing any driving on those roads. Still trying to figure out why they need 4 wheel drive trucks when all they do is drive on paved roads.
