EMPHASIS: Sobriety CheckPoint To Be Held In Jefferson County


Captain Ronald S. Johnson, commanding officer of Troop C, Weldon Spring, announces that a sobriety checkpoint will be held in Jefferson County sometime in the month of December. The Missouri State Highway Patrol, in cooperation with other area law enforcement agencies, will conduct the checkpoint.

Sobriety checkpoints are part of the Patrol’s efforts to remove intoxicated drivers from Missouri’s highways, and are conducted at various locations which have been found to experience a higher than normal number of alcohol-related contacts and collisions.

Captain Johnson says, “Intoxicated drivers compromise the safety of themselves and of every person who travels the highways in Jefferson County. We will continue to do everything we can to remove these hazardous drivers from our highways.”
