Tallahassee, Florida - June 26, 2012 -
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.
