TPD Hosts Sobriety and Safety Checkpoints
On Chapel Drive and Gaines Street
May 30, 2013
This evening, the Tallahassee Police Department will be hosting two safety and sobriety checkpoints in the Tallahassee area. The first checkpoint will run from 8:30pm until 9:30pm and will be in the 200 block of Chapel Drive. The second checkpoint will be held from 10:30pm until 11:30pm and will be in the 600 block of West Gaines Street. The checkpoints are used for the purpose of detecting drivers who are too impaired to operate a motor vehicle, vehicles with faulty equipment, and those drivers operating a vehicle without a valid license. The checkpoints will be well marked by signage, marked patrol vehicles, and uniformed officers. The checkpoints are designed to have a minimal impact on traffic flow and to save lives.
The Tallahassee Police Department reminds you, "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over".
