Tomorrow evening, the Tallahassee Police Department will be hosting two safety and sobriety checkpoints in the Tallahassee area. The first checkpoint will run from 8:00pm to 10:00pm and will be in the 1700 block of Hermitage Boulevard. The second checkpoint will be held from 11:30pm until 12:30am and will be in the 2500 block of West Tharpe Street.

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.
