sjpdThe St. Joseph Police Department has announced sobriety checkpoints will be held sometime during the months of March and April.

In a news release, Sgt. Chris McBane said the Northwest Missouri DWI Task Force will be conducting checkpoints in Buchanan County sometime during those months.

“We appreciate the cooperation of motorists that find themselves passing through a checkpoint,” McBane said. “Our goal is to take impaired drivers off the road making them safer.”

Drivers who find themselves in a checkpoint are asked to pay extra attention to the posted signs and officers working.

“The goal is to reduce drunk/impaired driving,” McBane said. “We encourage the use of a designated driver or a taxi cab if you are going out.  Please remember driver sober and always wear your seat belt.”
