Police Plan DUI Checklane

Salina Police are planning to crack down on drunk drivers following the Festival Jam Thursday evening.

Two DUI checklanes are planned with seven officers and one supervisor participating.

One lane will be set up to check for DUI’s near Front and Crawford, then will rotate to Broadway and Dover.

Lt. Russ Lamer tells KSAL News the program will operate from 10:00 Thursday night through 2:00 Friday morning.

The effort is funded through a Impaired Driver Deterrence Program grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
