On June 22nd and 23rd, Officers from the Kansas Highway Patrol and the Seward County Sheriff’s Department, will be cooperating in an effort to locate intoxicated drivers. Checkpoints operated by officers from these departments may be set up randomly at various locations in Seward County. Drivers suspected of intoxication will be stopped and given brief field sobriety test.
Confirmed impaired drivers will be arrested.
Efforts will be made not to severely interrupt traffic flow; citizens’ patience and cooperation will assist this important effort.
The goal of the program is to increase overall motorist safety.
