MSHP announces sobriety checkpoints in July
JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Wednesday it would start conducting sobriety checkpoints in Cole and Camden counties in July.
Captain Michael Turner with MSHP did not specify dates for the checkpoints, but said they would happen sometime during the month.
"Sobriety checkpoints enable the Missouri State Highway Patrol to enhance our efforts in removing impaired drivers from our highways," Turner said. "Driving while impaired continues to be a major contributing factor of traffic crashes in Missouri."
MSHP asked for help in reducing the number of impaired drivers by alerting them at 1-800-525-5555 or *55 on a cell phone.
