Checkpoint and High-Visibility Patrols Planned for Comanche County

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is teaming up with the Comanche County Sheriff's Office and the Lawton Police Department to set up a sobriety checkpoint in Comanche County on Friday, July 6. This checkpoint and the high-visibility patrols that take place at the same time are meant to get impaired drivers off the roads.

The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office wants to make sure everyone has a safe ride home this summer by offering a $10 off Uber coupon to anyone who needs it. To claim your Uber coupon, click here.

The checkpoint will start at 10 pm and run until 1 am. When a checkpoint is set up, a predetermined number of vehicles will be pulled into the designated area where the driver will be quickly screened to check for signs of intoxication. Once the officer, deputy or trooper determines that they do not believe the person is under the influence of any substance, the vehicles are allowed to exit the checkpoint.
