Troop B: Sobriety Checkpoint In Randolph County During June 2009
Captain John W. Elliott, commanding officer of Troop B, Macon, announces that sometime during the month of June 2009, a sobriety checkpoint will be held in Randolph County. The checkpoint will be conducted by the Missouri State Highway Patrol in cooperation with other area local law enforcement agencies.
“Sobriety checkpoints are an innovative means of detecting and removing the alcohol-impaired driver from our highways,” states Captain Elliott. “Driving while intoxicated continues to be a major contributing factor of traffic crashes in Missouri.”
Captain Elliott urges all citizens to help law enforcement efforts to apprehend intoxicated drivers. If you suspect a motorist of driving while intoxicated or observe a vehicle being driven in an erratic manner, contact the nearest law enforcement agency. The Highway Patrol has toll-free numbers for reporting emergencies. These numbers are 1-800-525-5555 or cellular *55.
