DWI checkpoint to be held in county

Thursday, July 3, 2008

Sobriety checkpoints will be held in Taney and Barry counties sometime during the month of July 2008. The Missouri State Highway Patrol, in cooperation with other area law enforcement agencies, will conduct the checkpoints.

Sobriety checkpoints are part of the Patrol's effort to remove intoxicated drivers from Missouri's highways and are conducted at various locations that have been found to experience a high number of alcohol-related contacts.

Drivers approaching checkpoints should carefully follow the directions posted on signs and watch for signals from traffic control officers.
