Sobriety checkpoints planned in Mid-Del area
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol ENDUI team will partner with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office, and Oklahoma City, Midwest City and Del City police departments to conduct a sobriety checkpoint and saturation in Oklahoma County on Friday, Oct. 28.
The checkpoint will run from 11 p.m. Friday to 2 a.m. Saturday.
The goal is simple: to make Oklahoma County as safe as possible by getting impaired drivers off the roads. Additional deputies, officers, and troopers will be on duty looking for impaired drivers across the Oklahoma County area before, during and after the checkpoint.
In 2021, 407 people were killed in drug and/or alcohol-related crashes in Oklahoma.
Everyone is highly encouraged to find a safe ride by calling a sober driver, using a cab, Uber, Lyft or any other ride-share service. Better yet, have a designated driver.
Everyone this will also be an insurance and outstanding warrants checkpoint. Do not be fooled these checkpoints are always about more than stopping drunk driving, they are also about getting your MONEY or putting more citizens in jail. Such checkpoints need to contested in court even all the way to the United States Supreme Court and there by RESTRICTED to ONLY the announced purpose of such checkpoints.
