Tallahassee, Florida - December 20, 2011 -

This evening, the Tallahassee Police Department will be hosting two safety checkpoints in the Tallahassee area. The first checkpoint will run from 9:00pm to 10:00pm and will be in the 2500 block of Hartsfield Road. The second one will be at the intersection of San Luis Road and San Pedro Avenue. The second checkpoint will run from 11:00pm until 12:30am.

The purpose of the checkpoints are to detect drivers who are too impaired to operate a motor vehicle, detect vehicles with faulty equipment, and those operating a vehicle without a driver’s 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.
