TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Tallahassee Police Department will be conducting a safety and sobriety checkpoint on Thursday.
On Thursday, the checkpoint will run from 11:30 p.m. until 3 a.m. Officers will be set up in the 1800 block of West Tharpe Street.
DUI checkpoints are used to detect drivers too impaired to operate a motor vehicle, vehicles with faulty equipment, and drivers operating a vehicle without a valid license.
They say the checkpoint will be well marked by signage, marked patrol vehicles, and uniformed officers. The operation is designed to have a minimal impact on traffic flow and to save lives.
Law enforcement has a legal obligation to publish this information prior to the check point taking place.
