DUI Checkpoints Set for Friday

A trio of drunk driving checkpoints aims to stop intoxicated motorists in their tracks.

For the first time Friday, a citizens group called the Tallahassee Pledge Coalition will be out there alongside Tallahassee police, handing out information on underage drinking and counseling drivers who are arrested.

Rachel Oliver says, "Talking to motorists who are offenders, and if they need any assistance, whether it be calling their parents or just some consultation, we'll be there for them."

The coalition will also be handing out "thank you" stickers to drivers who are sober. Friday’s DUI checkpoints will be on the student side of town, Ocala Road, High Road and San Luis.
